Rail unions have been pushing for re-nationalisation for years. With multiple Train Operating Companies they didn't get much out of strike threats.
Now that many of these TOCs have handed back the keys to the govt a strike looks more promising to the unions.

As an advocate of train travel, I'm sad that it's being priced out of the market. People will find other cheaper ways of travelling... or staying at home. Many are already doing so.
