Railway Strikes – June 2022

A series of National railway strikes, plus a Tube Strike are expected to bring much of the country to a stand still.

The Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) have said strikes are going ahead after talks failed to resolve their ongoing row over pay, jobs and conditions.

There are three National railway strikes planned for:
Tuesday 21st, Thursday 23rd and Saturday 25th June.

Tuesday 21st also will see London Underground RMT & Unite unions going on strike over a similar, but different dispute.
