Just to inconvenience it's loyal passengers (i.e. the people who pay their wages) and those who need to travel to visit loved ones at this holiday time, some Central Trains employees are going on strike on Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve and New Year's day. [How many inconvenienced travellers will take their cars to that party, when they know they shouldn't.]
When will these misguided twats realise that they are missing the target. The employer now doesn't have the extra cost (or the logistic headache) of providing a service over those days.
I can hear their argument that they've chosen this quiet period to reduce the inconvenience to passengers. I'll say this bit again "inconvenience to passengers".
