Tram drivers in south London are to become the latest rail staff to strike when they walk out for 48 hours on Tuesday in a dispute over pay.About 150 members of the Aslef union on the London Trams network, formerly known as the Croydon Tramlink, have rejected a 3% offer from operator FirstGroup.The move comes after a week of rail strikes across the country by members of the RMT union at Network Rail and 13 train operators.

Talks between the union and rail industry bosses to avert further strikes were continuing on Monday.Finn Brennan, Aslef’s organiser in London, said the pay offer to tram drivers would mean a real-terms wage cut for people already struggling to deal with rising bills.
