With strike action now underway, RATP Dev Transit London is deeply disappointed that Unite continues to refuse to come to the negotiating table and discuss the pay rise and bonus offer to drivers. The London bus market has been and continues to be extremely challenging and competitive. In this context, we have offered drivers a pay rise of 7.95% for two years plus a bonus paid in December this year, but this has been rejected. The union has refused offers of talks to resolve the pay dispute.
RATP Dev Transit London deeply regrets the inconvenience these strikes cause to its passengers. We call on Unite to come to the negotiating table so that drivers can receive their pay rise and we can restore services to passengers.
Note for our passengers
We anticipate that all services operated by London United will be suspended on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th August. We would recommend that passengers refer to the TfL website before they travel. Again, we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
