London faces possible bus strike

Public transport users in London face more disruption as bus personnel may join their tube and train counterparts in strike action.

London’s financial paper City AM reports the union Unite has warned of potential strike action across the capital’s bus network after TfL proposed to cut or change 78 of the current 620 routes.

Unite has called on TfL to guarantee that no jobs will be lost and that take home pay will not be cut, as London bus drivers fear they will lose overtime and rest day working, which they rely on to boost their salaries.

“These cuts are an attempt to make London’s bus workers pay the price for the pandemic and we reject them entirely,” City AM quotes Unite’s general secretary Sharon Graham.
