Train strikes to disrupt weekend before Christmas

News / Sat 17th Dec 2022 at 07:30am

TRAIN passengers are set to face further disruption on the last weekend before Christmas as rail workers continue strike action on Saturday reports the BBC.

Most services will be affected as RMT union members stage the second day of their latest 48-hour walk out.

Network Rail has advised people not to travel on trains unless it is absolutely necessary.

The strikes come as shops and hospitality businesses look to boost trade in the key Christmas period.

Thousands of rail workers have already staged strikes on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday this week as part of a long-running row over jobs, pay and conditions.

Saturday is the fourth day of strikes this week and the 12th since the RMT union voted for industrial action in the summer. Disruption is also likely on Sunday, a non-strike day, due to morning services starting later.

Struggling RMT workers are set to lose money in the run-up to Xmas as our mendacious government insist on outrageous pre-conditions for negotiations. I think that is the correct opening paragraph for this news story to correct Tory spin.

Tories badly miss reading the mood of this country. Years of cuts, one person doing the work of 3. And won't even talk to union's.
