Railway Workers in England Strike Once Again
UK Railroad Workers Strike Once Again

In the UK, more than 40 railroad workers went on strike again today after companies continued to make irreconcilable offers to unions after the RMT's three-day strike in June.

Today's strike was marked by the reaction to the aggressive statements against the unions, which have been on the agenda in England in recent days.

There was great support for the pickets in front of the train stations from the unions in many industries. Telecom workers and train drivers, who are certain to go on strike this week, as well as unions in the strike voting process shared messages of solidarity from strike points.

A crowd protest took place in the strike tent in front of Euston train station, which included RMT Secretary General Mick Lynch. Lync said the conservative party government was trying to outlaw the trade union movement, and harshly criticized the statements of Liz Truss, who is running for the Prime Minister's office, as a "radical rightist" against the unions.

He said Lynch Truss was trying to destroy the most basic pillar of democracy and oppress the Working class.

Jeremy Corbyn and Labor shadow minister Sam Tarry were also with the railroad workers in Euston in solidarity.

In his speech at the London Bridge station, RMT President Alex Gordon called for solidarity in the face of the Conservative Party government's attack on the trade union movement and said that a strong international struggle had begun.
