Employees of Northern Rail are planning to hold 24-hour strikes on August 25, September 1, and September 8. The strikes, all taking place on Saturdays, are part of a long-standing dispute over train personnel. Significant disruptions (reduced services, delays, overcrowding) are to be anticipated along the Northern Rail network on strike days. Increased road traffic congestion is also possible if large numbers of commuters are forced to seek alternative means of transportation.


Travelers are advised to monitor developments to the situation, plan alternate routes, and to allow for extra time to reach their destinations for the duration of the strike.
