The ITF is welcoming the news that after a London-wide strike and a subsequent six days of negotiations, London bus workers have overwhelmingly voted to accept an offer regarding an Olympic award.
71 per cent of the 20,000 bus members of ITF-affiliated union Unite, voted in favour of the deal from bus operators, which will mean they earn an extra £27.50 for every shift they complete for the duration of the games. The average number of shifts is 21 meaning most workers will get an Olympic award of £577.
