Olympic bus bonus talks to resume

Threat of strike remains Credit: ITN

Talks aimed at resolving a row over an Olympic bonus which led to a strike threat by London bus workers were adjourned today and will resume on Monday.

Unite called off a planned walkout yesterday but the threat of a stoppage on July 24 remains.

The union is seeking a bonus of £500 for each of its 20,000 members at 20 bus companies in the capital for working during the Games.

Peter Harwood, Acas chief conciliator said: "Further constructive talks have taken place at Acas today and the parties will reconvene on Monday."
