Report by Kamgar Ekta Committee (KEC) correspondent
Thousands of rail workers, represented by the biggest rail union RMT again went on a two-days on 13th and 14th December 2022, demanding hike in salaries to compensate for record high inflation.
RMT members rejected the last-minute offer on 12 December from Network Rail, which owns rail infrastructure. RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said, “This is a huge rejection of Network Rail’s substandard offer.”
He further added the pay offer was tied to “thousands of job losses” as well as an increase in unsocial hours including the provision of driver-only operation of trains.
RMT members plan to strike again 16th and 17th December to press for their demands.
