在倫敦,不宜外出的日子:地鐵又擺工

來倫敦後,除了一年一度的聖誕節外,可能你還可以把這種罷工視為外國人的「農曆新年」--"不宜外出"日。

離上個月進行的罷工還不到一個月,此次罷工源於員工不滿於從9月開始引入的24小時地鐵服務。雖然工會並不反對24小時的地鐵服務,但他們希望倫敦地鐵為夜間值班的員工提供更加吸引人的薪酬和待遇。(上次明明也是這樣說啊!擺工原因有分別嗎?)

我不是其中的一位員工,我覺得我没有資格去評論他們的工資是否已經足夠;他們是否太貪心;我只知道他們可以「去爭取自己想要的或是應份的」這種文化很好。在華人地區,那有這支歌仔唱?

不知道,跟上司說:「tube又擺工了,我可以提早走嗎?」
行嗎?

If the strike goes ahead, Tube services will stop running from 18:30 on Wednesday 5 August until Friday 7 August. There will be no Tubes on Thursday 6 August. We are expecting normal service to resume on Friday.

On Wednesday, Tube services will stop running from 18:30, so please complete your journey by then and travel earlier if possible. Tubes are expected to be exceptionally busy between 16:30 and 18:30.

DLR, London Overground, tram and TfL Rail services will be running as normal. All of these services are expected to be much busier than usual.
