British workers walkout over unsolved pay disputes

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM - MARCH 15: Thousands of British workers from different sectors walkout on Wednesday as disputes with the government over pay and conditions continue. Strikes have become a regular fixture in the UK as wage increases fail to keep pace with inflation, which remains above 10%. Disruptions in schools and travel are expected as teachers in England and Wales begin their second round of strike action, while London Underground drivers represented by the Aslef trade union also strike over pension and work arrangements. Junior doctors in England continue their 72-hour mass refusal to work, while civil servants are also walking out. "The National Education Union of course regrets the inconvenience caused to parents, children and young people by strike action. However, the responsibility for this lies squarely with your department," the NEU said in a letter to the country's education secretary. "Parents see daily the effect that the teacher recruitment and retention crisis, alongside woeful school funding, is having on their children’s education ... While we sincerely apologize for this disruption on Wednesday and Thursday, as a result of strike action, we believe that parents recognise the need for change," it added. Industrial action by the teachers represented by the NEU is expected to continue on Thursday, along with strikes by university staff at more than 150 universities across the UK, as well as Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) members.
