Rail Strike

Lovely. RMT have declared a two strikes after breakdown of talks with the National Rail bosses. Some of you might remember that the strikes which were declared in June were then cancelled in the hopes of new talks and it appears that those have now broken down. According to BBC the first strike is for 24 hours starting mid day on the 22nd July and Evening Standard on the other hand says that it starts on the 21st of July for 24 hours. Either way its gonna be a nightmare. And the second one is scheduled for 48 hours starting mid day 28th of July. 48 hours! Thats three days of interruption. Fingers crossed that the boss lets me work from home those two fridays.
