A series of three more one-day rail strikes began today (Thursday, 20 July) as part of long running disputes over pay, jobs and conditions.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) will strike on July 20, 22 and 29 while drivers in Aslef are banning overtime this week.
RMT members including station staff, train managers and catering staff will be involved in the action.
Services are still running. Here’s what each train operator is saying.
“We will still be running trains on these days, but with a reduced timetable.
“Our trains for all three days are back on sale, with timetables for Thursday 20 and Saturday 22 July now confirmed. However, the timetable for Saturday 29 July is still subject to change until timetables are confirmed by Network Rail approximately one week before the strike day.”
