TfL's Director of Surface Transport, Leon Daniels, has hit back at union claims that transport chiefs are in line for huge bonuses during the Olympic Games.
These are spurious and inaccurate claims by Unite. TfL's chief officers are not receiving an additional 'bonus' for performance during the Olympics.
"As has always been clear, bus drivers are employed by private companies and their pay and conditions are a matter for those private companies.
Unite has already negotiated binding deals for pay and conditions with each of the London bus companies for this year and those companies are keeping their end of the deal."It is disappointing that Unite continues to push for strike action, attempting to exploit the Games spirit and add a further multi-million pound burden to the hard-pressed fare and tax payers of London."
