Further Bus Strikes Affect East London

Bus Drivers Unite

Bus drivers are once again on strike, affecting 58 routes through East London. Members of the Unite union will strike until 3am on Sunday. Routes through Barking, Bow, Leyton, Romford, Upton Park and West Ham are most heavily affected. The industrial action comes in protest against the freezing of wages which, according to transport officials, range from £28,000 to over £35,000. The action follows a 24-hour strike a couple of weeks ago.

Wow, my house is effectively cut off from bus services until Sunday. Given that the nearest Tube is a 20 minute walk, this could be a frustrating weekend.
