These strikes are bringing disruption to millions of people

Labour haven’t condemned the strikes, they back derailing your summer

Families are facing global cost of living pressures. Labour's response? Backing today's rail strikes.

Their union friends admit it will cost families, yet Labour won't condemn it 👇

🥀 Labour once again failed to condemn this week's strikes.

❌ Strikes that will hit workers, students, and our Armed Forces.
