How strikes will hit travel between France and the UK this Christmas
Planes, trains, ferries and even roads look set to be affected by UK strike action, while French rail and airline unions have also filed strike notices.
The British actions come in the context of widespread industrial action from nurses to postal workers, train drivers to border guards, all of whom are striking to win pay rises above the rate of inflation that will help them cope with the spiralling cost of living.
UK-based security staff will walk out on December 16th, 18, 22nd and 23rd. The UK’s RMT union is also taking strike action between December 24th and 27th.
The Eurostar will be running fewer services than usual on December 23rd and 24th and has cancelled several services and changed the times of others – anyone with a pre-booked train is advised to check the website.
Network Rail strikes have closed UK rail lines, so the Eurostar will be running no services at all on December 26th.
