Arriva Yorkshire said only limited services would be running during the walk-out, which starts at 3am on Monday, November 14.

Members of the Unite union rejected a pay deal from the company and voted for strike action.

Nigel Featham, regional managing director for Arriva Yorkshire and North East, said: “First and foremost we want to wholeheartedly apologise to our customers who will be affected by this industrial action.

“We have been working tirelessly over the last year with Unite to bring pay talks to an amicable conclusion but despite our best efforts and multiple offers to increase pay and conditions we have received notification to strike.”
