A possible solution to the ongoing bus driver dispute could be on the horizon.
The Department of Community, Culture and Leisure and Unite have held further talks about employees' terms and conditions.
DCCL says a possible solution has been found which will be put to union members in a sealed ballot.
The proposal will allow the department to make the savings it needs to and at the same time assures drivers their new terms and conditions will remain in place for a further two years.
The ballot will be closed on Monday, February 11th. No further information is being made public at this time.
