Rail strikes hit Northern, Greater Anglia, South Western and Merseyrail
Fresh strikes are expected to cause more disruption for rail passengers in the latest 24-hour walkout over safety. RMT union members at Northern, South Western Railway, Merseyrail and Great Anglia are taking action for the third time in less than a week. Greater Anglia said it planned to keep conductors on trains and would be operating a normal service. Merseyrail said no trains would run on the Kirkby, Ellesmere Port or Hunts Cross lines, but most others would operate between 07:00 and 19:00. "RMT general secretary Mick Cash said:"It is frankly ludicrous that we have been able to negotiate long-term arrangements in Scotland and Wales that protect the guards and passenger safety, but we are being denied the same opportunities with rail companies in England.
Make a complaint about Merseyrail by viewing their customer service contacts.
