    Britain’s train drivers will stage a fresh round of strikes and an overtime ban from the end of January and into Februaryin a long-running pay dispute, the ASLEF trade union said on Monday.

    Drivers working across 16 train companies will stage one-day strikes in groups that will last until early February, ASLEF said.

    < p>“ We have given the government every opportunity to come to the table but it is now a year since we had any contact from the Department for Transport,” ASLEF General Secretary Mick Whelan said.

    The department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Britons have faced severe travel disruption since 2022, as a cost-of-living crisis spurred demands by transport workers for higher pay.
