Britain is facing its biggest rail strikes in decades after last-minute talks between union bosses and train companies failed to reach a settlement over pay and job security.
Up to 40,000 cleaners, signallers, maintenance workers and station staff are due to walk out for three days this week, on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The strike is expected to shut down most of the rail network across the country, with London Underground services also hit by a walkout on Tuesday.
The Rail, Maritime and Transport Union branded employers’ latest offer 'unacceptable' and said 'the strike action scheduled for this week will go ahead'.
