Two more days of rail strikes announced in row over jobs, pay and conditions
Sky News says Two further days of rail strikes have been announced by the RMT union for 18 and 20 August in the row over jobs, pay and working conditions.
The action will see more than 40,000 workers across Network Rail and 14 train operating companies walk out.
This is in addition to a 24-hour strike by the RMT on 27 July.
General secretary Mick Lynch said: “The rail industry and the government need to understand that this dispute will not simply vanish.
“They need to get serious about providing an offer on pay which helps deal with the cost-of-living crisis, job security for our members and provides good conditions at work.
