Commuters across the country were caught up in rail travel chaos this month after RMT called a strike - here are the predicted dates for further rail action this year.

As one of the biggest railway strikes in 30 years, Network Rail and the London Underground walked out of work after ongoing disputes over pay, working conditions and threatened redundancies in June.

And in order for RMT to really make their point, they have threatened multiple railways strikes throughout the year which could see travel disruption last until December 2022.

London already faced strike action from TFL in March over threats to jobs and existing pensions too.

RMT chief Mick Lynch told LBC he was "unhappy" the action was necessary but said workers had been forced into it.

What are the rail strike dates for July 2022?

As of yet, no official train strikes have been put in the calendar for the month of July.

However, should demands not be met or responded to correctly following the June strike, further action will happen.

Mick Lynch, general secretary of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT), said that unions were not looking to compromise after negotiations with rail bosses failed to make progress.

He told the i newspaper the public may have to expect disruption stretching beyond the summer.

The RMT says it has a ‘mandate’ for six months of industrial action, sparking fears of strikes all the way up until Christmas if the pay row isn't resolved.

What were the rail strike dates for June 2022?

Causing huge disruption across the country, RMT held rail strikes across the country on June 21st, 23rd and 25th.

TFL only held strike action on Tuesday 21st for 24 hours as they walked out over job concerns.

The RMT strike, which included Network Rail and 13 train operators, affected lines including the C2C, Chiltern Railways, East Midlands Railway, Great Anglia and more. Around 80% of services were disrupted for six days.
