Talks to prevent a strike by London bus workers tomorrow are continuing - with time running out fast.
Leaders of the Unite union and bus firm bosses are spending another day thrashing out a claim for 500 each for staff who work during the Olympics.
Up to 20,000 workers could walk out tomorrow (Thursday) if no deal is struck.
They are also set to stage another strike on July 24 just three days before the Olympic Games begins.
Peter Harwood, Acas Chief Conciliator, said: "Constructive discussions between the bus companies and Unite have taken place today and the parties now share a greater understanding of each other's positions. Talks have adjourned for the day and the parties will be reflecting overnight. Talks will reconvene at Acas tomorrow morning."
