(ANSA) - LONDON, JUN 23 - Second day of almost total train paralysis for millions of passengers in the United Kingdom in the context of the mega strike in the railway sector, the largest in 30 years on the island, proclaimed by the unions this week in the context of a dispute over wage increases, redundancies and working conditions that pits workers against both industry allies and Boris Johnson's Tory government.


    The protest - animated by the emerging figure of the union leader Mick Lynch - remains articulated over 3 alternating days of leave from work (Tuesday, today and Saturday), after the failure of yesterday's new negotiation talks, in order to maximize the impact.

Today includes a stop from 7.30 to 18.30 and participation is already confirmed at very high levels: with an average of about 80% of the canceled in England, Wales and Scotland, according to the latest indications, as on Tuesday.
