Ariva Rail North (ARN) industrial action in January 2019
Update from South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) on 20 December, 2018:
The RMT trade union has now announced further strike action for all Saturdays in January 2019.
Services on the Northern network will be affected on:
- Saturday 22 December 2018
- Saturday 29 December 2018
- Saturday 5 January 2019
- Saturday 12 January 2019
- Saturday 19 January 2019
- Saturday 26 January 2019
It is expected that, alternative rail routes, as well as buses, trams and roads in South Yorkshire will be busier than usual on the days of the strike as passengers alter their journey plans. As a consequence, journey times are expected to be longer.
Planning ahead and how to help
Northern is encouraging passengers to plan ahead using the latest travel information on their website at northernrailway.co.uk/strike. The National Rail Enquiries (NRE) website will also provide live, real-time train information across all operators, and NRE journey planning tools will be updated with Northern’s revised timetables ahead of the strikes.
SYPTE will support passengers affected by the industrial action by providing up to date information via Travel South Yorkshire channels.
