Strike Action Disruption

There are four further strike days in prospect – with action called for drivers in the ASLEF union on Saturday 30 July and for members of the RMT union on Wednesday 27 July, Thursday 18 August and Saturday 20 August, this will affect multiple train operators (and in the case of the RMT ones, their members who work for Network Rail as well).

Work is continuing to try to reach an agreement with the trades unions and to avert strike action. However, we strongly advise anyone planning journeys on the dates involved to plan on the assumption that the strikes will go ahead.
• Strike days - Our advice is to avoid travelling on these dates.
• The day after a strike day (non-strike day) - a strike will have a knock-on effect on the following morning trains. Some morning services won't run but should go back to normal in the early afternoon.
