These come on top of the previously-announced strike this Sunday.

The stoppages are likely to hit one in five trains, with no services on some lines and replacement buses on others.

Where conductor-operated trains run - everywhere outside Strathclyde - frequencies will be cut and services limited to around 7am-7pm.
