Northern Rail strike action in June

07 Jun 2018

Three more days of strike action have been announced for Tuesday 19, Thursday 21 and Saturday, 23 June

The RMT trade union is currently in dispute with Northern (Arriva Rail North) over proposed changes to the role of the conductor.

On strike days Northern operates a limited service. For example, on weekday strikes, the majority of available trains typically operate between 7am and 7pm, with many last trains leaving before 7pm. During these hours, the overall number of trains running are significantly reduced, with around 40 per cent of the usual number of services in operation. These trains, and any replacement buses, are usually very busy so please plan in advance.
