Rail Strikes — 15 Jun 2022 at 16:52

That this House recognises the vital role of the railways in supporting people and businesses across the UK every day; condemns the decision of the rail unions to hold three days of strikes; believes those strikes will adversely affect students taking examinations, have an unacceptable effect on working people and a negative effect on the economy; and calls on the rail unions to reconsider their strike action and continue discussions with the industry.
“Strikes are ultimately a sign of failure.”
“must sort this mess out and address the travel misery facing commuters.”
“a gun to the industry’s head”,
“ministers are determined to ensure strikers cannot milk the system”.
“condemns the decision of the rail unions to hold three days of strikes”
“First they came for the Socialists,
And I did not speak out because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
And I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
And I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for”-
“Thank you for your continued engagement with Chris Heaton-Harris and me as we try to bring services back together. Your members have been true heroes!”
“if I were a member of the RMT…I would be voting to go on strike”.
“the decision of the rail unions to hold three days of strikes”.
“does not want the national rail strikes to go ahead; and therefore urgently calls upon the Government, operators, network rail and the union to get around the table and resolve the issues on pay and cuts to safety staff to avert industrial action.”-(Mr Dhesi.)
