London’s bus companies agree to talks

Issue No. 2448

Bus drivers in London could be striking again soon if talks fail between Transport for London (TfL), bus operators and the Unite union. The talks are set for Thursday of this week. 

Drivers at the capital’s 18 bus operators struck twice earlier this year demanding an end to unequal pay and sector wide negotiations.

After months of the employers refusing to talk action by the drivers and pressure from their union has at least forced the bosses and TfL to sit round the table.

If nothing progresses from the talks more strikes will need to be called to rebuild the momentum lost since the last strike in February.
