More than 40,000 employees from Network Rail and 15 practice operators will strike on 8 October, their union has stated.
The RMT stated it could be “successfully shutting down the railway community” as a part of an extended operating dispute over pay, jobs and situations.
It comes after the union held the largest rail strikes in 30 years over three days in June.
RMT normal secretary Mick Lynch stated the union had met with new Transport Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyan.
“However, as no new supply has been tabled, our members haven’t any selection however to proceed this strike motion,” he stated.
