Dear Operator

Contract Prices – Fuel / Inflation

Please do not prepare your April invoices until you receive further communication from us next week.
We recognise that all operators have experienced sudden and unforeseen cost increases over the past two months.

A proposal to mitigate these unforeseen cost increases is being submitted for consideration to our Senior Leadership Team on Tuesday 3rd May.

Following the decision on Tuesday, we will write to all operators with instructions for April invoices. It is vital that no invoices are sent in until we have written to you again.

Our commitment is that this process will not delay payment of April invoices, that are correctly submitted once we write to you again next week.

Your patience in this is really appreciated. Unfortunately we cannot answer any questions on this between now and next week. We would also ask that you do not make any decisions on the future of any contracts, until after you hear from us next week.
Many thanks,

Well, at least they are being proactive?

Or are they panicking that drivers will merely return their school runs as they are no longer viable.

I have pointed out that in 95% of school routes the contractor uses owner drivers and that just like covide payments for suspended routes, annual inflation rises and days charged by the contractor when the pupils dont travel, the payments will go to the contractor ..........and stay with the contractor


YET.........and maybe uniquely, this county issues badges for all drivers so probably has an email address for each owner driver subbing off a contractor base so the email could be sent to all badge holders
