It would take a driver’s base salary from £49,001 to £60,683 for the existing 35-hour, four-day week. Most of Southern’s drivers also work a fifth day as overtime, which tops up their pay by 25 per cent, taking the potential total pay to over £75,000.
That’s a pretty hefty pay package, isn’t it? Three times median wage in fact.
Shows the power of unions…….
