No Northern trains to run on 1st and 5th October due to strike action

Northern says that as a result of strike action on Saturday 1 and Wednesday 5 October, the train operator cannot operate any services on those days. 

Meanwhile, strike action by the RMT on Saturday 8 October is expected to bring all but a handful of services to a halt, with Northern still working on a skeleton timetable to be published in due course. Customers are advised not to travel. 

Given the impact strikes have on fleet displacement, Northern is also advising customers to ‘check before you travel’ on Sunday 2 and Sunday 9 October, when services cannot start until later in the morning. 


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

“As we have previously pledged, we will continue to work towards a resolution to this issue with the hope of avoiding more disruptive strikes in the future.” 

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