Train Drivers to Strike Across the UK Again in December – BNN Bloomberg


(Bloomberg) — UK train drivers will strike again next month as part of a long-running dispute over pay and conditions.

Aslef members are set to walk out on various rail lines on a rolling basis in early December and also refuse overtime for the first nine days of the month, the union said in a statement.

Members “overwhelmingly” voted to spread out the industrial action, the statement said, adding that the “ramifications for the rail industry will be greater.” Aslef has held regular strikes as it battles for a steeper pay rise after inflation soared earlier in the year.

The RMT, another union that represents rail workers, said last week that it would not strike in the run up to Christmas.
