Bus Strike In London

Thousands of bus drivers across London are on strike, and commuters are being warned to expect disruption, although a third of buses are running.

85 per cent of workers are expected to take part in the strike action, despite the High Court yesterday granting an injunction to three bus companies, stopping their drivers from walking out.

The strike, which is due to last for 24 hours, began at 3am on Friday morning.

It's over a dispute about Olympic pay. Members of the Unite union want a £500 bonus for working during the Games.

Talks have been held to try and agree a deal, but the Unite union walked out of the day long talks, claiming the £8.3m made available to resolve the dispute would only provide £340 per driver, not the £500 they are demanding.  

The Unite Union wants them to be paid the bonus because of what they call the "massive increase" in workload during the Games.
