Network Rail and Transport for London workers to strike due to job loss and pay concerns

The week of planned strikes across the country will impact London Underground (Tube), Overground, Elizabeth line and national rail services across the UK between 21 and 26 June 2022. Only around half of Britain’s rail network will be open on strike days, with a very limited service running on lines that will only be open from around 07:30 until 18:30.

This strike action comes as part of separate disputes with both the RMT over pensions, jobs and conditions, and with Unite over pay.

Rail workers to bring British network to halt with three days of strikes

The Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union has told members to prepare to “shut down the rail system” with strikes on 21, 23 and 25 June, after a ballot of 40,000 members last month resulted in staff at Network Rail and 13 train operating companies voting overwhelmingly for full-scale industrial action.

About 10,000 more RMT members in London will also hold a further tube strike on 21 June, in a coordinated move designed to head off possible job cuts at Transport for London and in the national rail network.

Cost of living crisis protest underway in London

The demonstration was organised by the Trades Union Congress (TUC), who say working people have lost almost £20,000 since 2008, with wages not matching rates of inflation.

Named the ‚We Demand Better‘ march, a blue flare signalled its beginning at Portland Place, where hundreds of coaches had brought protestors.

What a coward Anthony Albanese is. Julian #Assange’s approved extradition has stirred not a peep from the new PM of Julian’s homeland, where Labor’s doe-eyed believe ‚Albo‘ is different in Washington-sucking Canberra. No, he’s not. The killing of #Assange is our final surrender.

Russian Escalations in Syria Risk Direct Conflict With U.S., Military Officials Warn

According to the report, Russian forces on Wednesday struck al-Tanf, a U.S. military base, where some 200 U.S. military personnel are stationed alongside local fighters in a bid to suppress a resurgence of the Islamic State. The report however states that Russia informed the U.S. of the attack through a communication line set long ago, suggesting it was not targeting American troops, but looking to harass U.S.-led coalition in Syria.

Despite no U.S. or coalition casualties, a U.S. military official described the operation as a „significant increase in provocation“ this month, the report said.

Drueke, who served in the U.S. Army, and Huynh, who served in the U.S. Marines, went missing after their group came under heavy fire in the northeastern Kharkiv region on June 9.
