When the train strike?

Rail workers who are part of the RMT union will take to the streets again on Wednesday 27 July for 24 hours.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: “The offer from Network Rail represents a real pay cut for our members, and the paltry sum depends on RMT members agreeing to drastic changes to their working lives.

“We have made progress on the issue of forced layoffs. But Network Rail is still committed to making our members poorer when in some cases we have won double what they are offering with other rail operators.”

ASLEF train drivers are taking part in a national strike on Saturday 30 July, affecting eight train operators.

These include Arriva Rail London, Chiltern Railways, Greater Anglia, Great Western, Hull Trains, LNER, Southeastern and West Midlands Trains.

Announcing the strike, the union said: “Everyone deserves a wage that matches the cost of living.”

ASLEF train drivers in Greater Anglia are taking part in their own strike action on Saturday 23 July, with passengers advised to expect disruptions and bus replacements which could be very busy.
