The rail workers were lauded by the Government during the pandemic for keeping the railways going, They were seen as "Key Workers" just like the NHS staff, Fast forward 2 years and they're all "Communists"There's a fair few job losses (25%of all track workers) they are trying to stop. I don't think those affected will see that as a tack on. Of course as with all negotiations there's things people will drop.
Worth noting most of the workers striking haven't received a pay rise in 3 years and the average salary for an RMT member is 31k.
