MORE THAN 1,000 bus crews in Leeds last week voted that a ban on Indian drivers wearing turbans while on duty should remain. Two Indian drivers have been suspended on full pay for the past 13 weeks since the matter first arose.
When they arrived for work wearing the turbans, they were disciplined by the operator, the West Yorkshire PTE, for breaking rules about uniform. Later the management relented, but the busmen objected to this decision. After last week's vote, which halted buses in the city for three hours, the York
shire regional secretary of the Transport and General Workers' Union said that he personally regretted the men's decision.
