UK rail travelers face more misery this summer as train drivers said they’ll strike on July 30, three days after a separate walk out and only weeks after earlier labor action shut down much of the network.

The Aslef labor group said Thursday that members will stage the day-long stoppage after failing to reach a pay deal with employers. Two other unions, including the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers that led the worst strike in three decades last month, will stage a 24-hour walkout on July 27.
