PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Huddersfield Train Station has been almost completely deserted today as passengers avoid railways due to the strikes. There has also been a small picket line taking place outside the station with RMT workers demonstrating their support for the strikes many union members voted for over a number of concerns. These include job cuts, a lack of pay rises as the cost of living soars and a general concern they were not being listened to. These strikes are taking place across the country and while many support the strikes, others are concerned about the lack of transportation. This is a particular issue in Yorkshire as Arriva bus drivers have been on strike due to a dispute with the Unite union since June 6 meaning it is even more difficult to get around.

He said: "I have had to set off an hour earlier than I normally would do. The train I would have normally taken has been cancelled and I wasn’t sure if another was even going to run. We’ll see if there’s even space on this one and see what happens on my way back.

. "The economy is not doing great at the moment and we’ve just had massive lockdowns which meant people have lost their jobs so I don’t really feel much sympathy for them (RMT) at the moment. I just hope there will be some trains on the way back and I hope people will be able to fit on them. "Buses have also been cancelled because of the action so worst case scenario I will have to take a taxi, but that would cost a small fortune.” Ivan Nugent, assistant manager at The Head Of Steam (Image: Connor Teale) Businesses which rely on the heavy footfall around train stations are also seeing a decrease in the number of customers. Ivan Nugent, the assistant manager at The Head of Steam, said: "A lot of our regulars are people who come through the station after work, especially because of the links with Leeds and Manchester. "We put on deals after 5 to target those people, so we’re not going to get that trade because of the strikes. It is worrying in a way. We were lucky to have the Ukulele festival here over the weekend, but the upcoming weekend is definitely going to be a lot different."
