Unions issue a warning that future strikes will affect Britain's trains.

Trade unions are once again bringing the nation to a halt by halting vital public services and firms . Government has condemned the demonstrations, branding them counterproductive and harmful to those on low incomes .

LONDON (Reuters) – On Thursday, Britain's rail network was crippled as unions, train operators, and the government fought for changes in pay increases to keep pace with rising inflation.A rise in the cost of food and fuel is pushing many household budgets to the brink and prompting trade unions to demand that their members receive more compensation increases.To prevent an inflationary spiral, the government has recommended wage discrimination.For the second day this week, unions built picket lines around rail stations and warned of more strike action unless a settlement is reached to improve wages and avoid layoffs.

It's highly likely that there will be no settlement if we do not find one.Although talks are ongoing, a third day of strike is scheduled for Saturday.Other industries are also on the verge of strike action, which unions fear would be a summer of frustration.The government has condemned the demonstrations, branding them counterproductive and most harmful to those on low incomes who rely on public transportation and are unable to work from home.

Trade unions are once again bringing the nation to a halt by halting vital public services and firms.Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng said that the situation in which we are today is not sustainable.Repealing these 1970s-era limitations will allow businesses to have fully qualified employees at any speed while still allowing workers to continue with their lives uninterrupted to keep the economy running.
