Bus drivers ready to take action

Issue No. 2204

Hundreds of drivers from the East London Bus Group (ELBG) met last week and agreed to support their Unite union’s call for a strike ballot if pay cuts are tabled.

ELBG wants to save £17 million in the next six months. It has asked the union to talk about cuts. The union is refusing because, as a rep said, “We are not here to slit our own throats.”
