MORE strikes by the RMT union in November have forced train operator Northern to advise its customers ‘Do Not Travel’ on three separate dates.

Action taking place on Bonfire Night, Saturday November 5; Monday, November 7 and Wednesday, November 9, will bring all but a handful of services across the network to a halt.

Given the impact strikes have on operations, Northern is also advising customers to ‘check before you travel’ on Sunday, November 6, Tuesday, November 8, and Thursday November, 10 when services will not be able to start until much later in the morning.

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

“We all want to see an end to this dispute and hope that discussions between the industry and trade unions will lead to a resolution soon so that we can avoid more disruptive strikes in the future.”

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