United Kingdom -Private sector bus drivers reach last-minute Olympic bonus pay deal -July 20, 2012

Just before the start of the Olympic games in London, private sector bus drivers agreed to a bonus payment of £27 per shift, expected to amount to about £577 per worker for the entire period of the games. The bus drivers from 21 companies went on strike in June, as reported in last month’s newsletter, when Transport for London refused to pay Olympic bonuses to the bus drivers that had been awarded to other transport workers. The drivers requested the bonus payments as a compensation for the enormous increase in work load and work pressure.
