Train services in Britain will continue to be disrupted today, as talks resume in a bid to resolve a dispute over jobs, pay and conditions.

Yesterday, the largest rail strike in decades saw rail workers walk out of millions of passengers.

Only 60% of trains are expected to be running as strikes are not being held today.

The RMT union will meet Network Rail and train companies, ahead of planned strikes on Thursday and Saturday. 

This is the greatest strike in 30 years in the UK.

The RMT strike involves 40,000 signalers, maintenance and train staff working for Network Rail

Currently the Prime Minister Boris Johnson is under pressure to help Britons curb harm to businesses.

Mick Lynch, secretary-general of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers says “RMT members are leading the way for all workers in this country who are sick and tired of having their pay and conditions slashed by a mixture of big business profits and government policy.”

Additionally, Boris terms the strikes as wrong and unnecessary.
