.Why are drivers striking?Unite officer Michelle Braveboy said some drivers are facing a pay cut of £2,500 a year.“Our members have no option other than to fight back against these attacks, while recognising the disruption caused,” she said.“They are reluctant to take strike action at a time of national emergency, but feel they have been pushed against the wall.”She added that the action will cause “serious disruption” to services.Claire Mann, director of bus operations at TfL, said: “We’re sorry that some of our customers may experience disruption to their journeys. “We’re doing all we can to minimise this, but customers should check before they travel and leave more time for their journeys, while remembering the Government’s advice to continue to stay at home if they can. “We urge all parties to sit down and talk through the issues to try and resolve them as soon as possible.”
