Bus Workers Will Strike Again If No Deal Is Done

Bus workers in London will go on strike again, unless there is a deal over their claim for an Olympic bonus.

That has come from the leader of the Unite union.

Thousands of drivers and other employees at 17 bus companies staged a 24-hour walkout on Friday, causing disruption for commuters in London. They want a £500 bonus for working during the Games.

Three bus companies were exempt from the action after they obtained a High Court injunction just hours before the strike was due to start.

Len McCluskey, general secretary of Unite, warned the employers that unless they negotiate a "fair and sensible" solution, there will be further strikes.
