Harrow bus drivers moved a step closer to striking this week.
Metroline, the bus company which operates in Harrow, has joined 17 other companies across London in a campaign for equal pay.
As it stands, some drivers in the capital are paid as much as £6,000 more than other drivers working for different companies.
One Harrow driver spoke anonymously to the Observer about the impending strike and stressed the need to take action.
He said: "As far as I am concerned, more than 95 per cent of people within Metroline are going to favour a strike if pay demands are not met.
"There is strong feeling amongst us that this needs to be addressed.
"This isn't about causing more problems for the people who use the service but about ensuring we get what we deserve for our hard work."
Unite, the union which covers all 18 companies, is calling for a single rate of pay of £30,000 a year for drivers, based on a 38-hour week.
Currently all the companies operate with different pay structures and some drivers complete nearly 60 hours per week.
Combined action for the single pay structure began on Thursday last week when representatives took to the streets of London to campaign for change.
Metroline balloted for possible action on the same day and expects postal votes to be issued in the next few weeks.
This means bus drivers could potentially strike at some point next month.
This follows a series of strikes in the borough in recent weeks by Unison, the NUT and PCS.
Peter Sibcy, a bus passenger, feels constant striking is not the answer. The 45-year-old, from George V Avenue, said: "People seem to be striking left right and centre and every time it is the residents who suffer the consequences.
"Of course people should have the right to strike but I think this right is being exploited at the moment."
