March Travel Disruption: Millions of Brits set to face travel chaos

 Wednesday, March 1, 2023 


There are millions of Brits are set to face further travel chaos after another major train union announced another strike in March.

The RMT revealed they were staging another walkout on March 15, as Chancellor Jeremy Hunt unveils his Spring Budget. The London Underground staff will again take to the picket line in protest over pensions, job losses and their contracts.

A funding cut to Transport for London (TfL) has also fuelled the fire of disgruntled RMT workers. The union accused TfL of trying “to make our members pay for their funding crisis” after the Government bailed them out during the pandemic.

March 15 is set to see chaos for commuters as tube drivers represented by the Aslef union are also striking for 24 hours. Jeremy Hunt will also deliver his Budget to the House of Commons on the same day – while more than 100,000 civil servants walk out due to a pay and pensions row.

RMT’s general secretary Mick Lynch said they will “fight tooth and nail” to secure their member’s demands.

He said that their members will never accept job losses, attacks on their pensions or changes to working conditions in order to pay for a funding cut which is the government’s political decision. The tube workers provide an essential service to the capital, making sure the city can keep moving and work long hours in demanding roles.
