More than 1,800 bus drivers in London have accepted a “greatly improved” pay offer, ending a long-running dispute.

Members of Unite employed by Abellio have staged a series of strikes in recent months, including from 1-3 February.

They have now accepted a pay increase that Unite said will see drivers with over two years’ service being paid £18-an-hour, equating to a pay increase of 18% on the basic rate.

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “This is an important pay victory. Workers have stood firm and with the support of their union, Unite, they have secured a richly deserved pay increase.

“Unite’s constant focus on the jobs, pay and conditions of our members is continuing to deliver increased pay awards for workers.”
