Investors’ ire at Nat Express

Marion Dakers
ALMOST a third of National Express shareholders rebelled against the transport group’s pay plans yesterday, following protests from investor groups and labour activists.

The firm, which runs a school bus business in North America, has come under fire for what British union Unite described as “a corporate approach to deny workers their rights to freedom of association and engage in collective bargaining for their working conditions”.

Union members from the US travelled to London to voice their concerns at the AGM.
