    As we all know about Kathy Tilbury, She loves to big herself up in front of the public, she loves to show off all her coaches to fans. She loves to take coaches to her daughter’s school proms, she also loves to show herself off in general, but when it comes down to the back bone and spine of the company which is the true works like the drivers. If it was not for people like us Kathy would not have a company in place. She has got all her drivers me included on a pathetic £7.20 per hour, but yet we as coach drivers have the responsibility of driving such large vehicles carrying passenger’s all over the roads of England and Europe, she thinks it fair to deduct hours off their wages that has been honestly worked for. Meanwhile people like Kathy Tilbury drive around in nearly new cars with personalised number plates, she also owns her own house, and yet only works in the office 09:00 to 17:00 daily, people like me and other drivers have to commute an hour to work, spending up to £120 per week on fuel. Kathy then spends further 10’s of thousands of pounds on CCTV equipment for inside and outside the coaches, and other things like Drivers monitoring systems and electronic voice recording systems to monitor what all the drivers are saying to the passengers. But yet she cannot afford to pay her drivers properly on money they have honestly worked hard for. And because I argue the fact I have done a tour with phone calls from tour managers praising my work to the highest standard she the deducts my hour down to only 10 hours on day one of your tour. A big thing all people should know about Kathy Tilbury! She extorts money honest money earnt by staff. For example if you work a 14 hour day on a tour and stay away from home in a hotel, she thinks its fair and write to deduct hours down to 10 hours flat rate regardless. But if you work for any other coach operators, and do a tour with a holiday company called Newmarket holidays, if you work 8 10 or 14 hour days you get paid in full regardless of which day it is, Kathy Tilbury seems to have got it into her head that on your first day of your tour you only get paid 10 hours regardless. Every driver that works for this company has all warned me about this with Kathy, but they fail to challenge this. Kathy is a greedy person in life and should not be allowed to treat the drivers in this way, why should she pocket two hours of my wages we all earn and put this in her own pocket? This is wrong and sick. If you are a possible new driver to this company be warned, you get treated like dirty and you get your hours cut to what Kathy thinks she should pay you.
