Metrolink tram workers are slated to stage a walkout in Greater Manchester from Friday, June 7, to Monday, June 10, to protest alleged pay differences between employees. Customer support, engineering, and business support staff are expected to strike beginning at 21:00 (local time) on Friday until 05:59 (local time) on Monday. The strike will bring tram services to a halt during Parklife Festival, one of Greater Manchester's most highly anticipated music events of the year. Around 80,000 people are expected to attend the three-day festival in Heaton Park, with many seeking to travel by tram.
Major transportation disruptions are to be expected during the strike period.
Individuals in Greater Manchester are advised to monitor developments to the situation, anticipate major disruptions and cancelations to tram services, make alternative transportation arrangements, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
