UK brought to a standstill amid biggest rail strike in 30 years Updated: 2022-06-22 06:17:48 KST

There's chaos on Britain's railways as nearly 40-thousand workers have left their posts in the UK's biggest rail strike in 30 years.
Only 20-percent of rail services in England, Scotland and Wales were operating on Tuesday.
This comes after talks on Monday failed to reach an agreement on a wage increase, with the transport union rejecting a 2-percent increase against their request for 7-percent.
Further strikes on Thursday and Saturday could also lead to major disruptions for millions of workers.
Meanwhile, only 60-percent of trains are expected to run on Wednesday, due to a delay in services as some operating staff are not doing overnight shifts.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that the strike could harm businesses that are still recovering from the impact of COVID-19.
