Some London bus drivers are also set to walk out over pay and conditions. Members of Unite based in several parts of the city will walk out from 22 February.

The union is in dispute with French-owned company RATP, which operates three subsidiaries in the London bus network.

Workers at London United, which provides bus services in south and west London, will take strike action on February 22, 23 and 24.

Workers based at a depot in Epsom, Surrey, will strike on February 22 and 23, while drivers in north west London, will strike on February 22.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.

We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
