Bus employees are looking to go on strike because of £500 Olympic bonus. There were thousands who voted for it at the unite trade union the actual figure was 90% more. This trade union is calling seven bosses out by saying that they will get a £560,000 bonus payment if the Olympic are trouble free.
“It is disappointing that Unite continues to push for strike action, attempting to exploit the Games spirit and add a further multimillion-pound burden to the hard-pressed fare and taxpayers of London,” said Leon Daniels, TfL’s director of surface transport.
They also added that £500 bonus sum equated to a “bill of £12m for no additional work”.
Union has given TFL a week to respond before they start looking at dates to do the strikes, bus drivers are also furious that underground staff would get £850 payment.
