Don’t let tube or Southern rail strikes damage productivity in your firm | Paralogic IT

Virtual WorkerBusiness disruption due to industrial action

Thankfully, wide-scale industrial action that impacts businesses is a lot rarer than it was in the days of the 1980s. Much industrial action is related to new technology or changes to working practice. Back then, the printing trade was one of those that underwent transformation as new print production processes came on-stream. In a futile bid to prevent the coal industry being dismantled, the miners’ strikes became notorious.

Today, the ongoing disputes at London Underground and Southern rail have caused widespread disruption to business and commerce in and around London and the South East. The Southern dispute has bitten particularly hard, causing people to quit jobs and cancel appointments for everything from business meetings to cancer treatment.
