Overtime ‘never part of terms and conditions’
Monday 31st December 2012, 2:30PM GMT.
Overtime has never been part of the terms and conditions of contracts drawn up between bus drivers and their employers, says the Transport Minister.
Deputy Kevin Lewis said that terms and conditions of the drivers’ employment were being transferred from Connex to CT Plus Jersey from 3 January, and that overtime had never been part of them.
Drivers staged a one-day strike yesterday, on the quietest bus travel day of the week, as part of their long-running dispute over transferring to the new operator.
Deputy Lewis added that the strike would have been an inconvenience to some members of the public, and was regrettable.
