Service Updates

Proposed industrial action on Thursday 4 June until Friday 5 June and on Tuesday 9 June until Thursday 11 June

The RMT Union, which represent track and infrastructure operator Network Rail, have announced that they are planning the following industrial action:

  • 24 hour strike action from 17:00 on Thursday 4 June until 16:59 Friday 5 June
  • An overtime ban from 00:01 Saturday 6 June until 23:59 Friday 12 June
  • 48 hour strike action from 17:00 on Tuesday 9 June until 16:59 Thursday 11 June

Talks at ACAS between RMT and Network Rail are ongoing but should this industrial action go ahead there is likely to be significant disruption to rail services from Thursday 4 June until Friday 12 June. Train services that do operate are likely to be extremely busy.

Network Rail and train companies are currently planning which train services will be able to run. Finalised timetables for the first period of strike action will be made available as soon as possible, but this is unlikely to be before Wednesday 3 June. More general information about services planned will become available over the weekend. Detailed information about services during the overtime ban and subsequent 48 hour strike will also be made available as soon as possible.

We appreciate that many customers may have their travel plans disrupted by the planned industrial action. Train companies are currently in discussions on special ticketing arrangement to make it as easy as possible for you to complete your journey or get a refund if you decide not to travel, should the industrial action go ahead.

Some train companies are likely to be putting in place additional local ticketing arrangements, so you may wish to check with the train company you'll be using before travelling.

If you already have a ticket valid for travel on any of the days potentially affected by the planned industrial action and no longer able to travel, the retailer that sold you your ticket will provide you with a full refund. Alternatively you can exchange it for another ticket (once you've paid any difference in price). If you want to obtain a refund or exchange your ticket please ask the retailer from whom you purchased your ticket.

If you have a Season Ticket you will be entitled to compensation. As these arrangements vary by train company, please check with your train company on the compensation you will be entitled to.
