They did at the start, but they seem to have lost interest now.
Going off topic but a ridiculously long strike will not only struggle to win public support but lose the media attention pretty quickly. I think most of us would willingly suffer a bit of inconvenience for a couple of days for a good cause but 4 weeks at the busiest time of the year is not showing any respect for the people you need support from.
Way off topic, but when RMT members working for Northern Rail were on strike every Saturday for most of 2018, it quickly fell down to barely a mention in brief on the regional news.
I'm not sure I like the way timetable changes are now portrayed in the media like a bad news story, hoping it'll go wrong, just because it did 3 changes previously. Almost as if the same timetable should be stuck to forever.
I've been in France since Wednesday and just got back. There's currently open-ended transport strikes on RER trains meaning there were no services today and limited ones on other days from Disneyland Paris. From what I saw on French TV, there were short reports way down the running order on 24h news channels, and while there were announcements over the tannoy both in EuroDisney and ParisAéroport, the airport version of France24 hardly mentioned it at all. With the importance of such strikes and the impact on the public, why isn't there more extensive reporting?
