London bus staff will stage one of three 24-hour strikes as part of an ongoing pay dispute on 5 February.

The Unite union announced the move last week and said that the walkouts would take place from 12.01am to 11:59pm on 5, 13 and 16 February. Transport for London is advising regular bus users to consider walking or cycling.

Workers hope to see equal pay across the capital’s 18 bus operators.

"The blame for the disruption that strike action will cause sits squarely with London’s bus companies," he added. "They have repeatedly ignored our offers for collective talks and need to get their heads out of the sand and start negotiating meaningfully about ending pay inequality on London’s buses."

A union spokesman said that drivers’ pay can differ by £3 per hour, from £9.30 to £12.34. TfL says "levelling up" would cost £100m a year and lead to higher fares and cuts in services.

Bus companies affected

The bus companies likely to be affected by the bus strike are:

• Abellio (Abellio London and Abellio West London)

• Arriva (Arriva North and Arriva South)

• CT Plus (Hackney Community Transport)

• Go Ahead (Blue Triangle, Docklands, London General, London Central, Metrobus)

• London Sovereign

• London United

• Metroline (Metroline and Metroline West)

• Stagecoach (East London Bus & Coach Company, Selkent)

• Tower Transit
