Good news – and more good news

First of all, I am closing down the London bus drivers Olympics campaign today after one month online.

This campaign, launched with the support of the ITF and Unite, resulted in a big win for the workers. As Unite reported in a press release last week, “London bus workers have overwhelmingly voted to accept an offer of an Olympic award, meaning most workers will get £577 for the massive increase in workload over the Olympics.”

Bobby Morton, Acting National Passenger Officer for Unite, wrote: “On behalf of Unite the Union I wish to offer my heartfelt thanks to all of you who sent messages of support through Labourstart to the London Busworkers who achieved a great victory in the Olympic solidarity campaign. I am convinced that if there was a gold medal for solidarity you would all be recipients. Thanks also to the International Transport Workers’ Federation, ITF, for their unstinting support and efforts during this campaign.”

The ITF’s own statement issued last week is here.

Second, today we broke through a major barrier and now have 100,223 names on our mailing lists. Wow.
