Railway workers will go on a three-day strike over pay and jobs later this month.

The strike is expected to cause widespread disruption to passenger and freight services in England, Scotland and Wales.

When is the strike happening?

Strikes are due to take place on: 21, 23 and 25 June.

The action will “shut down” the country’s railway network, according to the union involved – the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT).

RMT members include everyone from drivers, guards and catering staff to signallers and track maintenance workers.
