The United Kingdom sees a date later this month, the biggest train strike in more than 30 years against low wages and working conditions.
From the 21st to the 25th of this month, the UK will see the largest train strike in more than 30 years in protest of low wages and working conditions.
Today, Wednesday, the National Union of Railway, Maritime and Transport Workers announced a 24-hour underground strike in London on June 21.
More than 50,000 railway workers will go on strike later this month as part of a three-day national strike, the biggest conflict in the sector since 1989, when it was privatized, it said in a statement. Compromise negotiated with the union.

The union added that Network Rail, Britain’s largest railway operator, intended to cut at least 2,500 jobs in train maintenance “as part of a plan to save இரண்டு 2 billion.” “Network rail and rail transport companies have imposed a freeze on the salaries of its employees.”
Mike Lynch, general secretary of the union, told the union that the cost of living “was in crisis and that it was unacceptable for railway workers to lose their jobs or face another year’s wage freeze.”
The protest movements of the unions involved in many large-scale sporting and cultural activities, such as the Glastonbury Music Festival, may be a stumbling block.
British Health Minister Sajid Javed has warned of the impact of the strike on the economy, which is trying to recover after the Govt-19 epidemic.
“These strikes will affect not only the passengers but also the workers,” he said, calling on all parties to work for a negotiated settlement.
