Bus Strike Called Off
A planned strike by London bus workers tomorrow in a row over an Olympic bonus has been suspended to allow further talks.
Members of the Unite union were planning to walk out on Thursday and again on July 24, a few days before the opening ceremony, over a claim for a £500 bonus for working during the Games.
Peter Harwood, Acas chief conciliator, said: "I am pleased to announce the suspension of both the pending court action and tomorrow's strike. Acas talks are continuing."
Some bus companies had taken legal action to halt strikes.
Transport for London earlier offered to share any additional revenue made during the Olympics with bus staff in a move to resolve the dispute.
