More Bus Strikes

London bus workers are to stage two fresh strikes in a dispute over an Olympics bonus, including one walkout just days before the Games start.

The Unite union says its members will strike on Thursday 5th July and again on Tuesday 24th July, three days ahead of the Opening Ceremony.

The workers went on strike last Friday, causing travel chaos for tens of thousands of passengers and disrupting services across the capital.

The union is seeking a bonus of £500 for its 21,000 members at 20 bus companies, pointing out that other transport workers have been promised a premium payment for working during the Games.
