The sale of Plymouth council-owned Citybus will not got to a referendum, says council leader Vivien Pengelly.
Jack Dromey, Unite deputy general secretary, called for a referendum during a speech in the city on Saturday after 25,000 residents signed a petition not to proceed with a sell off.
Council leader Vivien Pengelly told thisisplymouth: “A decision about whether to sell Citybus will be made by elected councillors later this month when all the information and the facts are available.”
Unite’s anti sell-off campaign will culminate in a march and rally outside the Guildhall on Saturday, November 28.
The city council is due to meet on Monday, November 30 to make its decision on the proposed sell-off.
