London bus strikes: When are they striking and what routes?

London bus drivers are set to stage a fresh wave of strikes amid disputes over pay. 

Unite union members employed by Abellio across the south and west London will strike for 11 days in late December and through January. 

Ahead of the new strikes, bus drivers have already taken 10 days of strike action. 

Initially, the dispute involved 950 drivers but Unite has shared that its membership has since doubled. 

Speaking of the strikes, Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “Abellio is content to hoard mountains of cash but has imposed a completely unacceptable pay offer on its drivers.

“It is disgraceful behaviour and our members are rightly furious. Unite always fights to defend and improve members’ jobs, pay and conditions and Abellio’s south and west London workforce have their union’s unflinching support.”
