London Bus Strike: unions due to hold three walkouts in February

London bus strikes are due to happen not once, but three times in February – according to new updates from Transport For London.

The city’s Evening Standard reports that the first strike will take place this Thursday, February 5, and will run from 4am on Thursday until Friday morning. Subsequent strikes are planned for Friday 13 February and Monday 16 February.

Unions have confirmed that the new strike action continues their campaign to secure equal pay for drivers across 18 service providers.

Transport for London has cautioned travellers that the strike will cause significant disruption, and if the January bus strike is any measure, should see Tube networks clogged by commuters looking for alternative transport.

Wayne King, Unite regional officer said in a statement, “We urge London’s bus operators to see sense and collectively engage in talks to give London’s bus workers a fair deal.”

You can avoid disruption tomorrow by pre-booking a lift to work or any other location with Liftshare. We are far cheaper than the tube and boast hundreds of drivers offering lifts to and across London. Simply check out our location search page for the city to see all the lifts on offer right now.

We will keep you updated on the second and third bus strikes if they occur. Stay tuned.
