Employees of the Southern railway company, which runs trains between the southern cities of England and the capital London, went on a five-day strike to protest the new plans that will cause the dismissal of the platform officials.
Due to the strike, there are disruptions in transportation from the cities in the south of the country and Gatwick Airport in the south of London to London.
In the statement made by the Southern company regarding the strike, it was stated that efforts were made to minimize the impact of the strike to the passengers, and it was announced that 60 percent of scheduled flights would serve during the five-day work stoppage and that there would be no train service on some lines.
Southern employees oppose the plans of the train gates to be operated by the conductors using the camera system, arguing that the number of platform employees who control the opening and closing of the train doors in the current state will be reduced in the framework of the new implementation.
The organizer of the strike, Secretary General of the RMT Mick Cash, said in a statement about the developments that they want to draw attention to security concerns by means of strike decision, and that their priorities are more than railway security.
