Three train strikes have so far been announced for October.
1 & 5 October 2022
Services are expected to grind to a near-halt when train drivers, represented by ASLEF, launch two 24-hour walkouts on Saturday 1 October and Wednesday 5 October. On Saturday, October 1 they will also be joined by more than 30,000 RMT members employed by both Network Rail and 12 train operating companies – a move set to disrupt services across the UK.
8 October 2022
More than 40,000 workers from Network Rail and 15 train operators will strike again on 8 October, their union says.The RMT said it would be “effectively shutting down the railway network” as part of a long-running dispute over pay, jobs and conditions. It will come just a week after an even bigger strike by members of RMT and the train drivers union Aslef. Network Rail warned passengers to expect very significant disruption and only travel if absolutely necessary. It added that full timetables for upcoming strike days would be published soon.
