MORE than 45,000 rail workers have begun another day of strike action in a dispute over pay, jobs and conditions reports the BBC.
Network Rail said only 20% of services will run with train companies LNER, Cross Country and Chiltern Railways among those who will be affected.
Rail passengers saw disruption in a strike two days ago and the London Underground on Thursday as RMT, TSSA and Unite union members walked out.
The RMT union said a “stalemate” means the dispute may last for a long time.
It has accused the government of blocking the train companies from offering its workers a better deal.
However, ministers responded that the unions were causing the block, adding that if the deals on offer were put to the workers, they would be likely to accept them.
