Rail Workers Join Mass Strike on Eve of Tory Party Conference

Two of Britain’s three biggest rail unions have announced walkouts for Oct. 1 in a move that adds to a number of strikes across various industries on the eve of the ruling Conservative Party’s annual conference.

The Aslef train drivers’ union and the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers both said Tuesday that members will strike on a day when sorting staff and delivery workers at Royal Mail Plc and dockers in the ports of Felixstowe and Liverpool are already due to stage protests.
