“The discussions between the company and the trade union, which concluded today, have led to an improved offer to the 919 drivers and engineers at the company.

“The revised offer is going to ballot with Unite members over the next few days with a recommendation from the trade union.

“The result of the ballot is expected to be announced on Thursday 20 November.”

Martin Harris, managing director of Brighton and Hove Buses, said: “We have had challenging but constructive negotiations with Unite over the last two days.

“I am delighted that we are able to advise customers that services will operate as normal this weekend and next week.

“I am optimistic that this dispute will soon be settled.”
