Olympics pay bus strike announced

Help

Thousands of bus drivers in London will go on 24-hour strike next Friday in a dispute over pay during the Olympics, the Unite union has announced.

The strike will start at 03:00 BST on 22 June.

The union has demanded every bus driver should get a £500 bonus in line with other transport workers.

Transport for London (TfL) said it was a matter for the bus companies but has called the action "reprehensible".
