Rail strikes this week could cause chaos for commuters.

RMT Union members are planning to walk out today (8th Jan), Wednesday (10th Jan) and Friday (121th Jan).

Five train firms are walking out in disputes about staffing and the role of the guards.

But, luckily for us Greater Anglia have reassured us they are planning on running a full service for all three days.

Richard Dean, Greater Anglia Train Service Delivery Director, said:

“We will be running a full service for each of the RMT strike days on January 8th, 10th and 12th.

We’re very disappointed that the strike is going ahead, as we believe the best way to end this dispute is by constructive talks with union officials.

“We are keeping our safety-trained conductors on our trains.

In fact, we will be recruiting more when we get our new trains. We have guaranteed their jobs right until the end of the franchise in October 2025.

“We believe our conductors do a great job helping customers, which is why we want them to concentrate on customer service rather than opening and closing train doors when we get our brand new trains from 2019.”
