Further strike action planned to affect travel across London and across the UK.

It has been announced there will be further travel disruption across different rail and tube networks throughout March.

Members of the RMT working for 14 rail companies will walk out on:

  • Thursday, March 16,
  • Saturday, March 18,
  • Thursday, March 30
  • Saturday, April 1

Network Rail members will strike on Thursday, March 16.

Each walkout will last for 24 hours, so expect disruption on the days either side.

The 14 affected rail companies are:

  • East Midlands Railway
  • Great Western Railway
  • Avanti West Coast
  • LNER
  • Cross Country
  • TransPennine Express
  • Greater Anglia
  • c2c
  • Chiltern Railways
  • Northern Trains
  • South Eastern
  • South Western Railway
  • West Midlands Trains
  • GTR (including Gatwick Express)

Tube strike

Tube drivers will be on strike Wednesday March 15 – which also happens to be Budget Day – in a dispute over pensions and working arrangements.

Aslef union members in other roles on the Underground – including Test Train and Engineering train drivers and those in management grades – also voted in favour to strike and will also take action on the same day.

Advice is to plan for your journey and check before you travel.

Once again we urge all parties to try and reach a solution as soon as possible to minimise the disruption.
