Train drivers will resume their strikes next month in a long-running row over pay

Drivers at 12 train operators will walk out on October 1 and 5.

It will severely impact travel to and from the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham.

A planned strike by drivers on September 15 was called off as a mark of respect following Queen Elizabeth II’s death.

The drivers’ union Aslef will not be making a public comment until after the former monarch’s funeral on Monday.

Industrial disputes in the rail industry and other sectors, including post and telecoms, have led to a summer of strikes, which are set to resume in the coming weeks.
