The UK railway network, already crippled by walkouts throughout the past summer, faces further disruption as the TSSA union extends its strike action into next month.

Workers represented by TSSA at train and infrastructure operator Network Rail Ltd. will strike on Nov. 3, Nov. 5 and Nov. 7, while employees of the country’s various train operating companies will walk out out or undertake action short of a strike on Nov. 3, 4, 7 and 8, the TSSA union said in a statement Monday.
