Hundreds have joined pickets across Britain today as train strikes resume.

Nine out of 10 trains will be canceled today as all unions – RMT (Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers), TSSA (Transport Salaried Staffs Association) and Aslef (Associated Society of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen) – pull out while negotiations continue on numbers .

The last planned strikes were called off as a mark of respect following the Queen’s death on September 8. However, these have now been carried out and will be running over the next few weekends.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch has written to Transport Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyan urging her to “take urgent steps to facilitate a negotiated settlement” after the union said the latest figures showed rail bosses benefiting from government tax cuts.

The railway union has threatened to go on strike well into the winter over unacceptable wage offers from government-backed railway companies.

The disruption will be significantly worse than other rail strikes this year as union members RMT, Aslef and TSSA will all go on strike simultaneously for 24 hours.

The unions came together to coincide with the start of the Conservative Conference in Birmingham.

There will be no trains in many areas, with no direct services at all on some intercity routes between London and Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh.
