Bus strikes scheduled for Monday 26 and Friday 30 September have been cancelled after regional bus company, First Cymru came to an agreement with union Unite on a pay and conditions deal.

The strike, which would have affected First Cymru journeys served from depots including Swansea, Ammanford, Port Talbot and Haverfordwest, was originally scheduled to take place on Thursday 15 September, but was postponed due to the period of mourning for Queen Elizabeth II.

“This means that Unite the Union have agreed that pay negotiations have concluded and that there will be no strike action.

“Normal timetables will apply across all services.”
