Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Unions cancel Christmas: RMT rail strikes will cripple festive season”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The RMT yesterday announced four 48-hour strikes between December 13 and January 7, forcing many revellers to cancel parties and shoppers to stay at home instead.  

There will also be a ban on overtime working from December 18 to January 2. This will hit services on Sundays and other key dates such as Christmas Eve, Boxing Day and New Year's Eve, when many travel to be with loved-ones and friends.

The British economy will lose hundreds of millions of pounds when the UK is already in recession, with shopping trips cancelled, parties axed along with festive trips to pantomimes and shows also under threat.

Talks over the bitter rail workers' dispute will be held on Thursday ahead of a fresh round of strikes set to cripple services across the country.
