Waltham Forest Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition supporters have visited picket lines in and around the borough on both of the recent bus workers strikes. Workers are striking for sector wide negotiation – to being the process of getting one pay scale and set of terms and conditions across all of London’s bus companies.
Bus drivers are £2,000 a year worse off than seven years ago. Privatisation of the bus services means that routes go to the lowest bidder – i.e. the company that will cut pay the most. Workers have to fight against all attempts by the bosses to attack our jobs, pay and terms and conditions.
