Why Rail Workers Are Striking in UK
Author: SooGuy64

This involves railroads in the UK but the issues are quite similar to the US Class 1s.

Why is there a train strike? The reason rail workers are striking explained and if there will be more strikes (inews.co.uk)

There is a good deal of public support here for the strikers, though not of course by all. I suspect it will be a long dispute.

The planned walkouts by 40,000 staff at 13 train operating companies and track manager Network Rail are aimed at securing job guarantees and pay hikes against a backdrop of spiraling inflation, union leaders said.  (From Google...)

Similar worries to us here in the States....I hope their effort bears fruit.

The public are very dependent on trains in the UK for commuting to work so I suspect there will be increasing pressure on the employers to settle.
