Reacting to today’s news that Arriva Yorkshire and Unite the union have reached agreement on an offer, Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire, said:

“I’m relieved that Arriva and Unite have been able to reach an agreement that can be put to members. I’m sure that this news will also come as a great relief to the thousands of people who use and rely on Arriva services to get to and from work and education every day.
