UK. Rail strikes in November with significant disruption to services.
Strikes by the Rail, Maritime and Transport workers union (RMT) will be staged on Nov 5, Nov 7, and Nov 9 on national railways. Members will also walk out on the London Underground and Overground on Nov 10. There are no strikes currently planned by drivers union Aslef.
- When will services be disrupted?
Nov 3, Nov 5, Nov 7 and Nov 9 (strike days): 20pc of normal services are expected to run
- Nov 4, Nov 6 and Nov 8: 75pc of normal services are expected to run
- Nov 10: London Underground and Overground rail strikes (service levels are to be confirmed, but disruption will be significant)
Which lines will be affected?
All rail services are likely to be impacted by the walkout by Network Rail staff. Signal workers are included in those striking – and it is dangerous to run services without signal workers.
- RMT members across 14 train operating companies will go on strike on Nov 3 and Nov 5. The train operators are: Chiltern Railways, Cross Country Trains, Greater Anglia, LNER, East Midlands Railway, c2c, Great Western Railway, Northern Trains, South Eastern South Western Railway Transpennine Express, Avanti West Coast, West Midlands Trains and GTR (including Gatwick Express).
We advise you to only travel if absolutely necessary and expect severe disruption.
The railway will operate limited opening hours with services starting later than normal and finishing in the late afternoon. Please check your first and last trains carefully, as there will be no alternative travel outside of these services.
