Hackney school bus workers walk out
Unite the Union members in passenger services at Hackney Council walked out on 19 March in their fight for a payment in recognition of the fact that they undertake split shifts. The 33 members, who drive and assist the children to and from school on a daily basis, will stage further 24-hour strikes on 26 March and then on 2 and 4 April. The dispute centres on a £50-a-week claim for compensation for the split shifts, backdated to July last year when the issue was first raised.
