UK strikes: Who is walking out in April and May?

Train drivers are to stage fresh strikes – including the day of the FA Cup Final – in the long-running dispute over pay.

Their union Aslef said the walkouts will take place across three days in May and June.

The union said it had rejected a “risible” pay offer from the 16 train companies involved in the dispute, which it said had not offered salary increases to their drivers since 2019.
