UK Strike Threat Returns as Train Drivers Vote on Action

  • Result of train drivers’ union strike ballot due on Monday
  • Criminal barristers, post office staff also taking action

The UK train drivers’ union will announce on Monday whether it plans to strike, raising the prospect of further British travel disruption in a summer marked by industrial action across sectors.

The Aslef union is expected to post results of a vote of more than 21,000 members for a possible work stoppage over a pay dispute. The group has said it’s likely to coordinate across the national railway system to maximize disruptions.
