Passengers back London drivers on bonus

The vast majority of those living, working and visiting London believe bus drivers should get a bonus for coping with extra work during the Olympic and Paralympic games, a new poll reveals today. Of those questioned, 88 per cent thought London bus staff should receive an Olympic payment "in line with every other London transport worker." 
Nearly 3,000 London transport passengers were questioned in the survey by Unite - launched to coincide with the start of a strike ballot among more than 20,000 bus drivers protesting over the lack of bonus payments. The result will be declared on Friday 8 June and Unite believes there will be overwhelming support for the strike call.
