London bus controllers announce 24-hour strike

London busLondon bus controllers are today meeting at ACAS in a bid to head off a planned pay strike on Friday.

The Unite members working for Transport for London (TfL) in the CentreComm control centre will stage a 24-hour strike from midnight unless they receive an improved offer.

Unite regional officer Hugh Roberts said: “Our members undertake highly responsible work and they are not going to accept an offer which amounts to a one off bung and means that their pay and pensions are being cut in real terms. TfL management needs to put forward a realistic offer which takes into account the concerns and the efforts of our members.

“The strike will undoubtedly be disruptive to London commuters but this action is a direct result of TfL repeatedly failing to come forward with a fair deal for our members.”
