Talks aimed at averting strikes by bus staff just before the Olympic Games are due to resume tomorrow (Monday).

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.
