MORE strikes have been announced by Stagecoach bus drivers in a row over pay.

The bus company insists that it will operate a near-normal level of service during the next round of strikes which will be tomorrow (January 4). 100 managers and supervisors have been drafted in to run the services between 7am and 6pm. A special £1 flat single fare for adults will apply on the day of industrial action involving drivers. It follows six days of strike action by drivers during November and December 2011.

The union has also announced it is planning to take strike action on January 16.
