Aslef union train drivers announce two more strike dates

Train drivers are to stage fresh strikes after the rejection of a pay offer. Members of the Aslef union will walk out on February 1 and 3, causing more travel disruption across the country. The first strike will coincide with a walkout by 100,000 civil servants in their dispute over pay and jobs, a strike by teachers over pay, and nationwide protests against the Government’s controversial new strike law.
