They are obviously doing it as a last resort, no one strikes for the fun of it.

Unfortunately you only hear one side of all these strike stories due to great propoganda from the companies.

Until you know all the facts I don't believe anyone is in a position to criticise either party as you hear what they want you to.

I've been in that situation and it's hilarious how the press portray all the workers as the' baddies' when the management are trying impose ridiculous contracts on you but only leak certain info to the press.

But if the strike goes ahead how many people wont be able to work and therefore earn money.

The vast majority of the public sector / ex public sector staff need to join the real world and realise that final salaries pension, decent payrise not attributed to their performance & working longer than they are contracted too (without overtime) are not supportable in the 21st century when you have to compete in a free market

My simple solution would be either travel before and stay over or look into getting the bus.... no matter what there are ALWAYS ways - not saying they won't cost or anything :p

I have no issue with a genuine protest about unfair conditions but I do so hate the public sector / ex-public sector employees mentality that they're entitled to it - you're not, it has to be earned, like the rest of us. The BA strike was a case in point - they were objecting to terms, conditions and pay that would be jumped on by any other airline staff, BA are making a huge loss yet still they wanted more. Ridiculous and naive.

Don't know enough about the rail strike to comment, so won't.

Its basically about staff hours being cut which they claim will impact on safety

In the real world we are constantly expected to be more efficient and effective (ie do more work better) so no reason why they need 3 staff to do the jobs that could be done by 2.

Would it be unfair if work t&cs were being changed without adequate compensation?
#17
train strike is officially off...so far
#18
Yip - heard it too on the news so panic over people (for now)!

They do live in the real world, unlike you who live in a world of Sun headline clichés. Whats your idea of 21st century? Bankers getting fat again after causing world economic melt down while we have underpaid and overworked staff in our rail transport system. If not having a decent pension to live out your days is progress then you can stuff that kind of progress, because it sounds to me like going back 150 years.

Yes it would seem :whistling:
As long as you get to decide and not the actual workers affected. :thumbsup:

Just what we need trains hurtling around the country with stressed out underpaid staff with second jobs to make ends meet. You talk about other workers on lower wages with worst conditions as though because it is happening it is right. Why don't we all just drop our wages in line with India. Oh maybe because we want live rather than survive.

BA staff and royal mail are worst. Loss makng businesses with huge pension deficits but the staff still believe they should earn more than the competition and half 2/3 salary pensions


I work for an employer who gives payrises inrelation to your years performance. No improvement and no payrises. Simple
