The action comes as workers continue their dispute over conditions as well as pay.

The strikes could add further woe to UK’s airports, who have already seen huge queues because of staff shortages in recent weeks.

While easyJet workers in Spain have already confirmed they will be walking out for nine days next month.

With air travel set for more delays, further train chaos is also expected to take place this week.

The Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) said Thursday’s rail strike will go ahead after accusing Transport Secretary Grant Shapps of “wrecking” negotiations.

Around 40,000 members of the RMT union at Network Rail and 13 train operators are involved in the industrial action.

After walking out on Tuesday, causing chaos across the country, talks resumed today in a bid to resolve the bitter dispute over jobs, pay and conditions.

But with negotiations seemingly ending without a deal in place, the RMT have now confirmed that Thursday’s strike action will take place.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch RMT said: “Grant Shapps has wrecked these negotiations by not allowing Network Rail to withdraw their letter threatening redundancy for 2,900 of our members.

“Until the Government unshackle Network Rail and the train operating companies, it is not going to be possible for a negotiated settlement to be agreed.

“We will continue with our industrial campaign until we get a negotiated settlement that delivers job security and a pay rise for our members that deals with the escalating cost of living crisis.”
