More strike misery for train users across Lancashire



More strikes by the RMT union in November have forced the train operator Northern to advise its customers to avoid travelling on three separate dates.

Action taking place on Saturday 5, Monday 7 and Wednesday 9 November will bring all but a handful of services across the network to a halt.

Given the impact strikes have on operations, Northern is also advising customers to check before they travel on Sunday 6, Tuesday 8 and Thursday 10 November, when services will not be able to start until much later in the morning.

Tricia Williams, chief operating officer at Northern, said: “We apologise again for the significant disruption and inconvenience this action by the RMT will cause to our customers.

“We all want to see an end to this dispute and hope that discussions between the industry and trade unions will lead to a resolution soon so that we can avoid more disruptive strikes in the future.”

Northern is the second largest train operator in the UK, operating nearly 2,000 services a day to more than 500 stations across the North of England.
