Strikes strangle Christmas: Families abandon reunions, offices cancel bashes and bosses let people WFH as Mick ‘the Grinch’ Lynch orders EIGHT DAYS of rail chaos

Families are bracing for a third consecutive Christmas of chaos as ‘heartless’ union barons are accused of coordinating strikes to ruin festive plans of millions.

Hundreds of thousands of staff across the public sector, including rail workers, nurses, post office employees and road maintenance crews, are set to plunge Britain into a 1970s-style period of havoc over the holidays.

Those affected by the strikes have accused militant union chiefs of holding their Christmas plans to ransom as family reunions, parties and employees desperately trying to get to work face significant disruption.

December will see tens of thousands of medical staff join picket lines, along with the 40,000 railway workers also set to walk out. At the same time, the road network faces being paralysed after 12 days of strikes were announced by members of the Public and Commercial Services Union.

More than 100,000 Royal Mail workers will also strike across seven days during the month, one of the busiest periods for the postal service.

Firebrand Mick Lynch announced walkouts targeting passengers heading home for Christmas last night, acknowledging ‘the travelling public will be disappointed, irritated and angry’ but claimed his workers had ‘no choice’.

More than 40,000 rail workers will join the extra industrial action dates from 6pm on Christmas Eve until 6am on December 27.

The militant RMT union’s latest bid to cripple the railways has forced thousands of families to shelve holiday plans, parties and long-awaited days out at the 11th hour – despite this being the first ‘normal’ Christmas for millions since the Covid pandemic.

One elderly widower told MailOnline how a friend who was living abroad had offered to visit him to keep him company, but was forced to revoke that offer after the fresh wave of rail strikes were announced.

John Steed, 75, has spent the last two Christmases on his own due to Covid problems.
