London bus drivers are set to ballot for industrial action in the coming weeks over a dispute of being asked to sign on for work remotely.
Unite union explained the remote sign on means, that a driver does no report to a depot to start work but meet their bus at an alternative location.
Unite regional officer Mary Summers said, “Metroline has failed to understand the anger among our members about its proposals to introduce remote sign on.
“This is a huge slap in the face to drivers who lost colleagues during the pandemic but who still in the spirit of public service continued to ensure key workers got to work.
“There is also absolutely no advantage to passengers in this system, and in fact it builds in the potential for service disruption.”
