The UK is grappling with a nationwide wave of strikes

British railway workers begin a mass strike. According to trade union reports, 40,000 railway workers did not start work on Tuesday.

Participants demand higher salaries and better working conditions from the government. If they don’t get this, they will go on strike for four more days in January. At the same time, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said he was unable to meet demands for a wage increase.

In addition to railway workers, border guards on duty at airports and ground handlers are preparing to strike. So travelers can expect an unexpected Christmas season in British transport.

Meanwhile, British health workers are also on strike. The nurses are demanding a 19% increase in their salaries, which the government has rated as unachievable. Paramedics are also preparing for the layoff. The government appoints soldiers to replace them so that the supply is not interrupted.

The current strike wave is the largest in the past decade in the UK. The dissatisfaction is mainly caused by the 11% high inflation rate. The British economy is preparing for a prolonged recession, and people are looking forward to this Christmas in a gloomy mood.
