United Kingdom: in London, transport paralyzed by strikes

-

Published on: 08/19/2022 – 10:51 Walkouts continue in the United Kingdom on Friday in transport, post and ports to protest against the drop in purchasing power. In London, traffic will be severely disrupted. The social unrest continues in the United Kingdom. After a series of walkouts among railway, postal and dockworkers on Thursday, London’s public transport network will come to a virtual standstill on Friday August 19 and will remain heavily disrupted throughout the weekend due to a call for a strike over wages and working conditions. This movement, the largest in decades, has continued since the beginning of the summer in response to galloping inflation which is devouring the purchasing power of the British. Serious disruption is expected on all lines of the London Underground, London Overground rail links will be reduced and dozens of bus routes in the west of the city will not operate normally, said Transport for London (TFL), the capital’s network operator. Across the country, the watchword is the same: employees are demanding increases in their pay in line with inflation, which reached 10.1% over one year in July and could exceed 13% in October. Prices are driven in particular by gas prices, on which the country is very dependent and which are soaring because of the war in Ukraine, but also by the disruption of supply chains and shortages of workers in the wake of Covid-19 and Brexit.Sunday, the port dockers of Felixstowe (east of England) – the biggest for freight in the country – will in turn start an eight-day strike, threatening to shut down much of the country’s freight traffic. Postal workers, employees of the telecom operator BT, Amazon handlers, but also criminal lawyers or garbage collectors have also walked out or plan to do so. The movements could last beyond the summer, and spread to officials in education or even health. With AFP and Reuters
