Train users in Nottingham are being urged not to travel later this month by Northern Trains as strike action looms. The company is asking customers not to travel on its services between June 21 and June 26 because of the industrial action

The whole of the rail network is affected by strikes, planned for Tuesday 21, Thursday 23 and Saturday 25 June. Northern says it is currently working with Network Rail to agree what services it can run, but is expecting to run a very limited timetable and is suggesting customers do not travel on the strike dates.

Wherever possible, they say people should not travel on those in-between as well. They say customers should try to find alternative transport if their journey is essential.

In response to the RMT announcing strikes, Tricia Williams, chief operating officer at Northern, said: “Our ability to get customers where they want to be will be significantly impacted and our advice, regrettably, is simply not to travel during the week of strike action.

“We apologise in advance for the disruption and inconvenience that the RMT’s industrial action may cause. We continue to be keen to speak to the RMT to find a resolution and avoid any strikes.”

Northern usually runs nearly 2,000 services a day to 540 stations across the North of England.
