Rail Delivery Group warns of strike disruption

The Rail Delivery Group is warning that train services in England are set to be seriously disrupted from the end of this month, when the drivers’ union ASLEF stages industrial action in the continuing dispute over pay. Two 24-hour strikes have been called for 30 September and 4 October, and the union will also ban overtime on 29 September and from 2 to 6 October. The walkouts will affect nearly all English operators, and also disrupt cross-border train services in Wales and Scotland.
