ELBG: drivers discuss ballot for strikes
Drivers working for the East London Bus Group are meeting this week to vote on whether to begin a ballot for strikes. The Unite union members are facing a serious attack on pay and conditions. Bosses are demanding a 15 percent wage cut—or the sacking of 250 workers with only statutory redundancy pay. For many workers the cut will mean losing around £100 a week.
