Southern rail workers to strike over Christmas and new year

Two three-day strikes to start on 22 December and New Year’s Eve as long-running dispute continues

Southern rail commuters are to be hit by yet more delays and cancellations over Christmas and the new year as the RMT union has given notice of additional strikes in the heart of the festive period.

Southern accused the union of “hitting a new low”, warning that the strikes would affect families travelling home for Christmas as well as shops and businesses at their busiest time.
