Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• A delegate conference of London busmen yesterday met to consider increases of £2 a week, offered by London Transport in response to a claim for £5 a week. If accepted, the offer would bring drivers' basic rates to £24 and conductors to £23.15 for a 40-hour week—a request for a reduction of the working week by 24hours was rejected outright.

It is understood that acceptance of the offer would include the consolidation into basic rates of £1 of the differential for one-man operators (£5 a week for single-deck buses and £6 for doubledeckers). The increases, if approved, will be implemented next month.
