DRIVERS in North Humberside and North West England have rejected low percentage wage offers, and a slightly higher first offer has been made in the West Country.
Transport and General Workers Union members in North Humberside rejected a £2 increase in top weight basic, while TGWU members in the North West rejected a £2.50 top weight offer.
More talks have been arranged for North Humberside next week, and talks in the North West will probably resume in January.
The Western area offer is of four per cent, taking top weight basic up from £85 to £88.40, subsistence from £9.75 to £10, meal allowance from 25p to 27p, and meal allowance after a night out from 62p to 66p.
