Aslef calls another Welsh strike

A FURTHER strike has been called of Arriva Trains Wales drivers, after peace talks broke down.

Aslef said its members would walk out on 1 February, in the continuing dispute over conditions.

There has already been one strike this year, on 4 January, and there had been hopes that further negotiations would result in agreement over terms and conditions of drivers' employment. A pay deal has already been accepted.

Aslef said: "ASLEF today announced that, in the light of Arriva Trains Wales' failure to offer a satisfactory resolution to the long and ongoing dispute with its drivers, our members will withdraw their labour for 24 hours on Monday 1 February."

Arriva Trains Wales said it 'regretted' the disruption.

    These strikes are starting to get out of hand now. They don't seem to think of the disruption it causes to passengers as a result.
