About 5,000 railway workers in England went on strike. Many train lines in England, including the Southeast and West Mindlas train lines, were disrupted by the strike, while passengers suffered.
Mick Whelan, Secretary General of the British union ASLEF, which represents railway workers, said in a statement: “All we want is a rise in wages in line with inflation and the increase in the cost of living in the country. “Rising inflation is not the fault of the workers in this country, it’s the government’s fault,” he said.
It was learned that railway workers in the country will go on strike again in August.
