Angry London bus drivers in Unite the Union demonstrated outside City Hall on 14 September, demanding a 'bill of rights' to improve the working conditions in line with the London Assemby report 'Driven to Distraction'. One protester said: "Bus drivers are not going to accept the terrible and dangerous conditions we currently endure. We are demanding respect." Speakers included bus workers plus speakers bringing solidarity from the National Shop Stewards Network and the transport union the RMT.
