Union: bus companies need to "see sense"

Steve Turner from the Unite union talked to London Tonight about his hopes for the talks taking place today.

Union leaders are meeting with representatives from the capital's 20 bus companies, in an attempt to prevent further strike action.

Bus workers are planning to walkout for 24 hours this Thursday and on the July 24th, just three days before the Olympic opening ceremony.

They want a £500 bonus for working during the Games.
