Full list of strikes coming this summer including broadband and post disruption | The Sun

BRITS are set to face a chain of strikes this summer as backlash occurs over industrial action.

Many mass walk-outs will happen from July as transport and essential services face wide spread pay cuts.

British council workers as well as transport services have held a ballot over whether they should walk out from this month onwards.

Many could begin striking as soon as next week.

We've put together a list of organisations set to go on strike as they fight against industrial action, including those who still could choose to strike.

As always, we'd recommend double checking any transport times and schedules that you have booked to avoid getting caught up.

The largest rail strike in years is set to take place this month.

Train, tube and tram services will be running at a reduced rate on 21, 23 and 25 June.

We recommend making alternate plans for those days – you don't want to be caught out in a huge schedule disruption.

More than 50,000 workers across Network Rail and 13 out of 15 train operators are choosing to strike over looming job and pay cuts.

Industry bosses warned that the walkout is “as bad as it gets” for rail freight and that supply chains will be impacted despite contingency plans to run freight trains at daytime.

RMT has not confirmed any further strike dates and says it is still in negotiations with employers.

As for train and tram strikes, the Aslef union said train drivers on Hull Trains, Greater Anglia and Croydon Tramlink will also strike later in the month in a different argument over pay.

Find out more specific times and dates on the Aslef website.


Arriva buses in parts of Yorkshire have been stopped for good as drivers walked out last month, demanding an inflation-related pay rise.

Unite union said strikes are expected to go on for “an undisclosed period of time”.

Bus routes are not operating across Wakefield, Dewsbury, Castleford, Pontefract, Heckmondwike, Cleckheaton, Bradford, Leeds, Ossett, Batley, Morley, Rothwell, South Elmsall, Hemsworth, Huddersfield, Halifax, Doncaster, Selby, York and Goole.

Double check your local timetable to make sure your journey isn't affected.

Bin strikes

Another pay dispute is causing bin workers to strike across the country.

Wealden and East Sussex faced strike action for five weeks until 25 June, but now Croydon is down in the dumps until 8 July.

Over 100 bin lorry drivers, loaders and sweepers working for Veolia are demanding higher pay, with many workers earning more than £7,000 less than similar jobs in other London boroughs.

Again, check to make sure your local area isn't planning a strike, or a"summer stink".

BT Broadband

BT Broadband workers are on their first national strike in 35 years.

Staff including those working for EE and Openreach signed a ballot on June 15 to go on strike over pay disputes.

The cost of living has increased demand for higher pay.

This will affect how quickly customers get broadband problems fixed as roughly 58,000 workers walk out.

“Our job is to balance the competing demands of BT Group’s stakeholders and that requires careful management, especially in a challenging economic environment,” said a spokesperson for BT.

“The result of the CWU’s ballot is a disappointment.”

Airline strikes

Despite a flurry of cancelled flights and long delays continuing right now, staff at British Airways are on strike over an overwhelming dispute over pay.

Check-in staff at Heathrow airport have decided to strike over the school holidays as more airport drama unfolds.

Staff are demanding higher wages to fight the rising cost of living.

Who else could strike?

More workers, including care home staff, traffic wardens and manufacturers could still choose to strike this summer.

Strike action is looming at St Monica's Trust, a care home in Bristol, over threats to accept pay cuts or face unemployment.

Other companies like Stafford's Saint Gobban, which produces sandpaper, are considering strikes over pay.

And watch out for ferry timetables too – Red Funnel ferries are facing disagreements over pay as well.
