Rail workers to walk out for 48 hours this week
RMT members to strike on Wednesday and Thursday, with South Western Railway affected for first time
Rail strikes over the future of guards on trains will disrupt services across the country on Wednesday and Thursday, with one of Britain’s busiest commuter franchises, South Western Railway, affected for the first time.
Members of the RMT union will walk out for 48 hours on South Western, Greater Anglia and Southern trains, while Merseyrail and Northern will see strikes only on Wednesday as a row over guards that started on the Southern route last year ripples around the UK.
