Bylor Night shift update

It was brought to our attention on Saturday evening that there had been a major failure of the bus service at the end of the Friday shift. This was brought to EDFs attention following unofficial action taken by workers on nightshift.

As a result, we have had meetings today (10th May) with EDF/NNB and SPS to discuss the cause of the issue and compensation for the event.

SPS have taken responsibility for the severe failure in their service. They say this was due to a mistake with the driver’s rota meaning that there were not enough drivers available to take individuals off site via a secure service at 04:00 on the 8th May. As a result the process has now been reviewed and altered to avoid this happening again in the future.

We raised the issue of workers being delayed in getting off site through no fault of their own and the fact that they should be compensated for the time lost. This is currently being reviewed by EDF who have committed to giving the unions an official response to a compensation claim before the end of this week, although they said this could be as soon as tomorrow (11th May).

We regret to inform you that because of the unofficial nature of the action that Bylor as the employer have taken the view that the time spent by workers standing down from work will be unpaid. We are currently fighting this decision on behalf of our members due to the fact that they felt they had no other option but to take this action in order to raise the severity of their treatment. This was exacerbated by the restricted services and points of contact available to workforce on the nightshift. As a result of Bylor's decision workers involved have had 2 hours pay deducted from their shift hours on Saturday night.

Could we be informed of the discussions with EDF? This was meant to have been resolved by 16/05/2021


Are we going to get any feedback or are being kept like mushrooms again,cmon the largest union on hpc so you keep telling us,,, sort it out days/nights all buses


EDF need to know this is not a one off problem and saturdays mornings bus issue was the straw that broke the camels back. Fact is the buses from east to north are a complete shambles every sat and Sunday morning, it’s always been like this since we started night shift. Reading your post makes it sound like the secure buses are the issue. It’s not, the whole internal bus service is crap sat and Sunday mornings !


We were not even told there was a sitting in


I didn’t take part. When everyone was sitting in I was doing my job! Why should I be punnished?
