The strike, which lasted 48 hours, was organized by the RMT workers union. About 40,000 RMT members are participating in the campaign. The train drivers’ union will also strike earlier on Thursday. Railway unions have been campaigning for a large increase in wages and better working conditions for some time. It was also shut down several times before Christmas.
