Southern rail drivers split planned six-day strike in two
Train company says two three-day strikes will ‘maximise misery for commuters’
Two weeks of unprecedented disruption on Southern rail now loom in January after a planned six-day walkout by train drivers was split over two periods, a move which the train company said would “maximise misery for commuters”.
The driver’s union, Aslef, said it was “taking a longer-term view” of the dispute, and warned that strikes over driver-only operated trains could spread to other franchises such as Northern.
