Lothian Buses drivers to be allowed to remove their ties.

This petition had 546 supporters

With temperatures in Edinburgh reaching over 25 degrees centigrade, and more hot weather to follow, we call upon Lothian Buses to allow their drivers to remove their ties during summer months, at their own discretion.

Currently, Lothian Buses drivers must wait for permission from bosses, which they received yesterday at 1pm, by which time the temperature was already 25 degrees Celsius. This was reported in the Edinburgh Evening News here.

We value our bus drivers who are essential service providers in our city and we do not consider that customer service will suffer as a result of allowing staff the discretion on whether or not to remove their ties during hot weather.
