BRITAIN’s biggest rail strike for 30 years is due to go ahead tomorrow with over half trains to Glastonbury cancelled, leaving Brits fuming.
Train travellers have been urged to stay at home unless absolutely necessary up and down the country after last ditch talks failed to resolve a dispute over pay, jobs and conditions.
This has left Brits fuming, with one person taking to Twitter to say: “Taxpayers might feel the RMT and its members are taking the p*** by going on strike for even more money.”
One user responded: “100%… I know some people who work on the rail for basic £50k a year with guaranteed overtime for working a weekend who actually sometimes do ten mins work a night, the rail network is a financial disaster !!!”
Half the rail network will shut down on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday in the biggest walkout in 30 years, the RMT confirmed this afternoon.
One unforeseen result of these strikes is that over HALF of the trains to Glastonbury have been cancelled, leaving many festival goers stranded just a day before it starts.
This could be a disaster for the festival, as 200,000 people flock to the iconic event.
