The drivers will walk out over what Unite the Union say is a ‘huge disparity between their pay and that of Arriva Liverpool drivers’. According to Unite, Arriva drivers are paid £1.40 more an hour, equating to around £3,000 a year, for performing the same role. The workers will strike from June 13 to 17, impacting day-to-day travel and transport to events such as Taylor Swift’s series of sold-out concerts at Anfield Stadium.

On June 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17, Stagecoach services 10A, 14, 53, 82, 86 will not be operating - though the Arriva services will continue to operate on these routes. In addition to this, Stagecoach will not be able operate any of its other contracted services. Services 17, 19, 20/21 will operate to a reduced frequency between 6.30am – 7.30pm on the proposed industrial action dates.

On June 13, 14 and 15, the Stagecoach 917 Shuttle bus service from Liverpool city centre to Anfield will operate, due to ‘safety and security concerns’ surrounding Taylor Swift’s three sold-out concerts at Anfield Stadium. Stagecoach services 1/X1, X2 & 471/472 operating from other depots into Liverpool will run as normal as other Stagecoach depots are not involved in the industrial action. All services are expected to return to normal on June 18, however, due to the knock-on effect of the action, Stagecoach say there may be some ‘minor disruption’.
