Guest: Jacob Lorinc, Business Reporter at The Star. The message early in the pandemic was simple from many employers: Get vaccinated. Now, as vaccine mandates are being lifted, some employees who were suspended or laid off for choosing not to get vaccinated are fighting back, often through their unions or civil lawsuits. The other issue is the vast majority of employees are vaccinated, many of whom are in favour of some type of rules in the office, so that they feel safer about heading back. Some employers are experimenting with radical solutions, but what is the fair and equitable way forward for all? This episode was produced by Brian Bradley, Paulo Marques and Raju Mudhar.

Britain faces the second of three national railway strikes Thursday after new negotiations between union and employers ended in deadlock.The Rail, Maritime and Transport Union accused the government of “wrecking” Wednesday's talks and said the 24-hour walkout by 40,000 cleaners, signalers, maintenance workers and station staff would go ahead as planned. The union's action this week is Britain's biggest and most disruptive railway strike for 30 years.Rail infrastructure company Network Rail said it was “disappointed that the RMT have again chosen to walk away from negotiations. We remain available for talks, day or night.”The union held a daylong strike on Tuesday that brought the U.K. rail network to a crawl, with only a fifth of passenger services running. Another walkout is planned for Saturday.The dispute centers on pay, working conditions and job security as Britain's train companies aim to cut costs and staffing after two years in which emergency government funding kept them afloat.The strike pits the union against 13 privately owned train-operating companies and the government-owned National Rail. While Britain's Conservative government insists it is not involved in the dispute, the union notes that it plays a major role in the heavily regulated industry.Prime Minister Boris Johnson has put blame for the strike squarely on the union.The railway union's leader, General Secretary Mick Lynch, said the government had “wrecked these negotiations by not allowing Network Rail to withdraw their letter threatening redundancy for 2,900 of our members.”He said there could not be a settlement unless the government agreed to “unshackle” the train companies and let them offer the union better terms than the 3% pay raise on the table so far. Britain's inflation rate hit 9.1% in May, as Russia's war in Ukraine squeezes supplies of energy and food staples, even as post-pandemic consumer demand is soaring.The government warned that big raises would spark a wage-price spiral driving inflation even higher.Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the union's claim he had meddled was “a total lie.”“I have had absolutely nothing to do with either the issuing of a letter from Network Rail, the employer, to the RMT — or any request to withdraw it,” he said.Unions have told the country to brace for more as workers face the worst cost-of-living squeeze in more than a generation. Lawyers are planning a walkout, and unions representing teachers and postal workers both plan to consult their members about possible actions.- by Jill Lawless, AP

Daily News Brief by TRT World

*) Russian journalist auctions Nobel Peace Prize Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov has auctioned off his Nobel Peace Prize gold medal for 103 million dollars to benefit children displaced by the conflict in Ukraine. Muratov donated all of the proceeds from the sale of the medal to UNICEF's Humanitarian Response for Ukrainian Children Displaced by War. The Nobel prize was snapped up by an as yet unidentified phone bidder according to Heritage Auctions, which handled the sale. *) Russian television broadcasting in southern Ukraine Television towers in the southern Ukrainian region of Kherson have been reconfigured to broadcast Russian television as Moscow's offensive in Ukraine enters its 118th day. The Russian armed forces said they had "reconfigured the last of the seven television towers to broadcast Russian television channels" for free. In Ukraine's southern Kherson region, the Russian army has already introduced the rouble and begun distributing Russian passports as well. *) Macron to host French opposition party leaders French President Emmanuel Macron will host political party chiefs in a bid to break the impasse created by the failure of his coalition to win a majority in parliamentary elections. In a rare encounter, Macron will host Marine Le Pen, his rival in presidential elections and leader of the far-right National Rally. He will also meet with right-wing, Socialist and Communist party chiefs, while the far-left leader Jean-Luc Melenchon is not scheduled to do so. The meetings are the first attempts by Macron to extract himself from a situation that risks wrecking his second-term reform plans. *) PKK supporters hold demonstration in Sweden A group of supporters of the PKK terror group has held a demonstration in the Swedish city of Gothenburg, calling on Sweden to impose an arms embargo on Türkiye. Reacting to the development, Mikail Yuksel, chairman of the Party of Different Colors in Sweden, said "the Swedish government says it considers the PKK a terrorist organisation, but implements a two-faced policy." The protest came as negotiations about Finland and Sweden's NATO bids and Türkiye's security concerns continued. Türkiye objects to the membership bids, criticising Finland and Sweden for supporting the PKK terror group, which has been responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 people across the country. *) Biggest rail strike in 30 years brings UK to standstill UK's biggest rail strike in three decades kicks off as tens of thousands of staff walk out in a dispute over pay and jobs. Picket lines appeared at dawn and will be lined by some of the more than 40,000 rail workers who are due to strike on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, bringing the network to a standstill. Unions have said the rail strikes could mark the start of a "summer of discontent", with teachers, medics, waste disposal workers and even barristers moving towards industrial action over surging prices.

Britain is facing its biggest rail strikes in decades after last-minute talks between a union and train companies failed to reach a settlement over pay and job security.Up to 40,000 cleaners, signalers, maintenance workers and station staff are due to walk out for three days this week, on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The strike is expected to shut down most of the rail network across the country, with London Underground subway services also hit by a walkout on Tuesday.The Rail, Maritime and Transport Union branded employers' latest offer “unacceptable” and said “the strike action scheduled this week will go ahead.”Secretary-General Mick Lynch said rail companies had “proposed pay rates that are massively under the relevant rates of inflation, coming on top of the pay freezes of the past few years.”Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the strike would cause “mass disruption,” with only about 20% of services able to operate.Shapps placed blame for the strike squarely on unions, which he said were resisting much-needed changes to make the railways “fit for the post-COVID world.”“This strike is not about pay,” Shapps told lawmakers. “It's about outdated unions opposing progress.”U.K. passenger numbers remain below pre-COVID-19 levels, and train companies, which were kept afloat with government support during the pandemic, are seeking to cut costs and staffing.Unions have urged the government to get involved to resolve the dispute. They accuse Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative administration of standing on the sidelines so it can blame unions, and the left-of-center opposition Labour Party, for the disruption.Unions say the government, which sets the rules for train companies and owns infrastructure operator Network Rail, has not given the firms enough flexibility to offer a substantial pay increase.“The dead hand of this Tory government is all over this dispute,” said Lynch, the union chief.Unions are warning of a summer of strikes as soaring inflation hits the pay packets of workers across the economy.Millions of people in Britain, like those across Europe, are seeing their cost of living soar. Salaries have not kept pace with inflation, which has hit 9% and is forecast to rise further, as Russia's war in Ukraine squeezes supplies of energy and food staples including wheat. Prices were already rising before the war, as the global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic fueled strong consumer demand.Lynch said he expected other sectors to strike later this year.“I think there are going to be many unions that are balloting across the country because people can't take it anymore,” he told Sky News. "We've got people doing full-time jobs who are having to take state benefits and use food banks. That is a national disgrace.”Treasury minister Simon Clarke said workers should get “a sensible pay increase,” but that too big a raise would spark a wage-price spiral driving inflation even higher.Compounding the travel misery in the U.K., Heathrow Airport said it was asking airlines flying from Terminals 2 and 3 to cut 10% of flights on Monday. The request came after reports emerged Friday of a huge backlog of baggage at the London airport.Several European airports have scrapped flights in an attempt to reduce delays. Budget airline easyJet said Monday it was “consolidating” flights because of “operational issues” at airports including London Gatwick and Amsterdam's Schiphol, which have both cut the number of flights they will handle over the summer. EasyJet didn't say how many flights would be affected.- by Jill Lawless, AP

Today is Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, or WWDC. It's one of the biggest events of the year for Apple, one of the most important companies in the world. In fact, Apple is the most valuable company in the world, and it posted $18 billion in net profits in its first quarter — the most quarterly profit of any public company in history. So, as we go into another huge Apple event, I wanted to have Verge labor reporter Zoe Schiffer on to talk about something else that's happening inside Apple: a brewing push by its retail employees to unionize, store by store, because they're unhappy with their pay and working conditions. Zoe is really well-sourced; she has an inside look at this fight. So, she helps us explain how this all works and what it might mean.
