railway workers went on strike in England

After health workers and firefighters, train drivers joined the cost of living protests that started across England. The workers of Aslef, one of the rail transport unions in the country, went on strike, demanding raises in salaries and better working conditions.

The London Bridge stop, one of the busiest train stations in London, stopped serving, and many stations across the city had only a couple trains that continued operating.

The Center for Economics and Business Studies estimated that the strikes that were staged in the eight months until January cost the country’s economy about 1.7 billion pounds ($2.09 billion).
