Train Drivers to Resume UK Strike Campaign Next Month

UK train drivers will resume strikes in October after industrial action planned for this week was called off following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Drivers at 12 train operating companies will walk out on Oct. 1 and 5, the person said, asking not to be identified as the dates haven’t been officially disclosed. The Aslef union declined to comment, saying that any announcement will come after the Queen’s state funeral Monday.
