XC - RMT Possible Strike Action

17 Nov 2017

Cross Country Update

Possible strike action by the RMT union for Sunday 19 November
Unfortunately, the RMT union has called a strike for Sunday 19 November that could significantly affect CrossCountry train services. We remain hopeful that the matter can be resolved without the need for a strike, however if the strike were to go ahead, we would only be able to operate at a reduced service, with the majority of available trains operating between 09:00 and 19:00. Some services would finish earlier than normal and some stations will have no CrossCountry services, although alternative travel arrangements are being prepared.
All the latest information will be added to a dedicated webpage about the strike, which can be seen here -
I hope this notice enables your teams to manage appropriately client arrangements should they be travelling on this day.
