    (ANSA) – LONDON, JUN 20 – There is a clash between the British Conservative government and the trade unions over a historic train strike, the largest in the last 30 years, which threatens to paralyze the country this week. According to the UK media, an agreement is being attempted in extremis between the unions, in particular the Rail Maritime and Transport Workers (Rmt), the leaders of the railway companies and the Network Rail (public network manager) on the eve of the first of three days off (tomorrow, Thursday and Saturday) in the context of a dispute concerning above all the request for an increase in salaries increasingly eroded by record inflation.

    A strike on the London underground is also planned for tomorrow: it promises to be a real nightmare for those who will have to reach the capital.

    Despite some attempts at mediation, the position of the Tory executive remains rigid in the tug-of-war with the unions, with the Deputy Minister of the Treasury, Simon Clarke, who invites workers to make sacrifices in this difficult time for the whole country. While transport owner Grant Shapps spoke of a disastrous strike for the sector. It is most likely the beginning of a week of great inconvenience for those traveling especially by train, with the predictable protests of passengers, which Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Tories could ride. While the Labor opposition led by Keir Starmer accuses the government of adding fuel to the fire but does not support the protest. (HANDLE).
