One of the most recent disputes that has sparked industrial action is that between London bus drivers, who are part of the Unite union, and bus company Abellio – in a pay dispute that has yet to be resolved.
If all the planned strikes go ahead, passengers will be disrupted with several days of action in November and December – with the planned strikes starting today.
So when does the London bus trike end and when can we expect the next one?
Here’s everything you need to know.
When will the London bus strikes end?
The next round of bus strikes began Friday, 11/25 and continues today 11/26
Services this weekend are expected to resume at 6 a.m. on Sunday, November 27thaccording to TFL website.
The bus drivers who disembark work in workshops in Battersea, Beddington, Hayes, Southall, Twickenham and Walworth. That’s what Unite says on its website – and more than 950 drivers are expected to go on strike.
Sharon Graham, Unite general secretary, said of the dispute: “Abellio is an extremely wealthy multinational that could and should pay its workers a fair wage increase.
Routes that will be affected by the London bus strikes
These are the 59 affected routes:
Route 481 operates with fewer services on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The remaining services will be more busy than normal.
24 hour routes
“With workers grappling with runaway inflation, Abellio’s failure to even engage in meaningful wage negotiations is callous and callous.
‘Unite is now solely focused on defending and improving the jobs, wages and working conditions of its members and Abellio bus drivers will have the full support of the union.’
Union regional officer Guy Langston added: “The strike action will cause widespread disruption across the London bus network, particularly in south and west London, but this dispute is entirely the work of Abellio.
“It had every opportunity to engage in meaningful salary negotiations, but decided against it.”
However, further strike days are currently expected…
When is the next bus strike in London?
Another nine strikes are planned by Unite members – over the same dispute with Abellio – on:
- Thursday December 1st
- Friday December 2nd
- Saturday December 3rd
- Friday December 9th
- Saturday December 10th
- Friday, December 16th
- Saturday, 12/17
However, these strikes could be canceled in the future if the wage dispute is resolved in negotiations.
