UNISON sets the agenda – half price bus travel for Apprentices across the West Midlands

During the election for the West Midlands Mayor, UNISON West Midlands produced a manifesto with one of theĀ items being for free bus travel for 16-19 years olds in Further Education, including Apprentices.

Ravi Subramanian, UNISON Regional Secretary added, “Now the Tory Mayor Andy Street has introduced half price bus travel for Apprentices. The scope is not as good as our manifesto ask, but it is a step in the right direction.

I’m really proud to see our union setting the agenda outside, as well as inside the workplace. But we need to keep campaigning to win the real prize of FREE bus travel for all 16-19 year olds in FE and Apprentices.”

This is another reason why Apprentices should join UNISON. See the special offer above for Apprentices working in Sandwell.
