Rail strike: Northern Rail, Merseyrail and Southern staff walk out

0 دیدگاه

Hundreds of thousands of commuters are facing disruption with up to 2,000 workers on strike across much of northern England’s rail network.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) Union from Arriva Trains North, Merseyrail and Southern are walking out over the role of guards and plans for driver-only-operated trains.
Long-suffering travellers on the Southern network have faced months of strikes over the dispute.
More than half of services on Merseyrail and Northern Rail will be cancelled, the operators said, while Southern said it hoped to run 90% of its trains.
It marks one of the biggest days of industrial action since rail privatisation in the mid-1990s. The 24-hour strike ends at midnight.
Northern Rail said services would “generally not start before 7am, with services winding down between 5pm and 7pm”.
Rail-replacement bus services are operating on some routes.
Northern Rail warned that services between Leeds and Manchester would be especially busy.
The operator’s network covers a large area of northern England, including Tyneside, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cheshire and Lincolnshire.
