6,000 London bus workers from 3 different companies have been taking co-ordinated strike action in pursuit of a basic wage of £30,000. Since privatisation, drivers from different companies have different wages and conditions. The companies argue that they need to be competitive, i.e. offer lower wages than competitors to get work. There is no justification for bus drivers being on different rates of pay if they do the same job. This strike has been building up for years and is long overdue.
