London-wide strike next Friday

Unite has announced that bus drivers across London will go on 24-hour strike next Friday, in a dispute over the Olympic bonus. The strike will start at 3am on Friday 22 June and last until 3am Saturday 23 June. The union said it could not rule out further strikes during the Olympics. 
Unite regional secretary for London, Peter Kavanagh, said: "London buses will come to a standstill for the first time in a generation across London on 22 June. The blame lies squarely with the bus operators and TfL... The bus companies haven't met with Unite once to discuss bus workers' extra contribution to the Olympic Games and TfL has refused to intervene."
