Up to 20,000 members of the Unite union could walk out in a row over an Olympics bonus for workers.

The union is seeking a bonus of £500 for each worker at 20 bus companies in the capital for working during the Games.

A walk-out due to take place last Thursday was postponed during eleventh-hour negotiations, last week.

But the threat remains of a stoppage on July 24 – just three days before the start of the Olympic Games in London.
