Red button pressed: UK traffic stopped

Tens of thousands of London underground workers and 40,000 workers from the National Railways joined the strike on Tuesday morning.

MTI writes that the layoffs were initiated by RMT, Britain’s largest union representing transport workers, following the failure of the last meeting with employers on Monday night.

The RMT is demanding a minimum wage increase of 7 percent for public transport workers, arguing that this will only partially offset the expected inflation this year. The union also opposes the UK government’s allocation of hundreds of millions of pounds in a savings budget for the London Public Transport Corporation, which RMT says could lead to mass layoffs.

Workers at 13 railway companies in the UK, Wales and Scotland and Network Rail, a British rail infrastructure company, are set to strike again on Thursday and Saturday following Tuesday’s national train strike.

Network Rail estimates that more than 60 percent of scheduled flights will not operate on non-strike intermission days.

It affects almost every line

Lines. The same is true of the network train on Tuesday on the National Rail Network.

A few trains depart from major London train stations on major routes, but in Scotland, 90 per cent of traffic on the network is stopped.

The strike affects the London Overground Network and the United Kingdom named after the King of England. Queen Elizabeth opened traffic on the Queen Elizabeth Route, the new high-speed rail line in the capital, a few weeks ago. Most recently, in 1989, there was a simultaneous national train strike in Britain and the London Underground.

Traffic to London has drawn the attention of commuters to the fact that after the London Underground strike on Tuesday, traffic could only resume on Wednesday morning, after which delays are expected.

The strike is different Departments: Mate writes that Kate Nichols, CEO of UK Hospitality, went missing due to strikes in a report on the BBC’s British Public Service Radio (Tuesday).
