TIMEFRAME expected from 10/9/2018, 12:00 AM until 10/16/2018, 11:59 PM (Europe/London). COUNTRY/REGION Scotland, England

Event

ScotRail workers are set to stage an indefinite partial strike, refusing to work overtime and on rest days, beginning at 00:01 (local time) on Wednesday, October 10. Although service will continue during normally scheduled hours, reduced service is possible due to the reduced workforce; however, ScotRail representatives have claimed that the company will provide normal services during the strike period. The strike, organized to protest alleged unequal rest-day working payments, is set to continue until further notice.

Context

ScotRail provides rail transportation service to Scotland and northern England (i.e. Carlisle and Newcastle upon Tyne).

Advice

Individuals traveling via ScotRail are advised to monitor developments to the situation, confirm train reservations, and contact ScotRail for more information.
