• Glasgow bus crews, who brought the city's transport services to a halt for one day on March 15, have agreed on an award of up to £1.90 a week from May. Two schemes were put to the transport workers by the corporation establishments committee after the men threatened further strikes and other sanctions.
Delegates met at the offices of the TGWU to consider the proposals and opted for the second offer. One offer was an award in two stages dating from March 7 and July 4, each involving an increase of 95p for drivers, 87-1-p for conductor's and 57-ip for maintenance staff, with the agreement to run until June 1972.
The other offer was a single award of similar amounts dating from May and ending in May next year. Mr Phil Jenkins, a union official, said there would have to be further talks.
The new offer, affecting 4500 workers, will cost the city nearly £+m a year.
