FROM OUR INDUSTRIAL CORRESPONDENT
THE general secretary of the T.G.W.U.,
Mr. Frank Cousins, has bowed to the will of his London busmen. Although he rejected their first plea that he should step in on their pay negotiations, which are seriously deadlocked, he has now agreed to their second, unanimous, request for him to do so.
After discussing the situation last week with Mr. Sam Henderson, the union's
national passenger group secretary, he tried to arrange a meeting with the L.T.B.'s chairman, Mr. A. B. B. Valentine, but the latter was indisposed with influenza and so a meeting date could not be fixed. Such a meeting will no doubt be arranged as soon as the L.T.B. chairman is better. Meanwhile, Mr. Cousins was due to have talks yesterday' with leaders of the London busmen.
