First Aberdeen services during upcoming industrial action
Andrew Jarvis, Managing Director of First Aberdeen:
“First Aberdeen are disappointed that union representatives and their members have decided to vote in favour of industrial action. Our union colleagues must realise that we are operating in a very challenging economic climate, which has had a negative impact on the business. Unfortunately, difficult decisions are having to be made but the current economic climate has affected our business and we have to react.
“I would like to assure all customers that regardless of any upcoming industrial action at the King Street depot, we will still be offering services across our network. We are currently planning the exact details of how this will look in the event of Industrial Action, but we intend to still run frequencies of either hourly or half hourly across the majority of our routes at the very least.
“We are still finalising this plan, but revised timetables will be communicated before the end of the week. Hopefully, this is plenty of time to give customers a reasonable notice of these changes and I would like to thank them in advance for their patience and understanding during this period.”
