Commuters across the country are being caught up in continued tube and rail strikes as fall out over pay, pensions and working conditions continue.

As the biggest railway strike 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.

In the latest strike news, further strike dates for July and August have already been planned and confirmed.

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

Here are the scheduled tube and train strike dates for 2022:

What are the rail strike dates for July 2022?

A fresh rail strike will go ahead on July 30 in the dispute about pay, jobs and conditions.

Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) members at train firms and Network Rail will walk out for 24 hours on Saturday, after the union’s bosses rejected a new 4% pay rise backdated to January.

It would have provided another 2% rise next year and the same again if "modernisation milestones" were hit.

Rail union Aslef has also announced that train drivers at nine rail companies will strike on Saturday August 13 in a dispute over pay.

The RMT has already confirmed two further rail strike dates for August 18 and 20 which will affect Network Rail and 14 other rail operators.

They fall on a Thursday and Saturday which will cause a four-day disruption should they go ahead.
