RMT Further Strike Dates

The RMT union (on board and station staff) have announced two further strike dates for Saturday 26 August and Saturday 2 September at train operators across England, including GWR.


As on previous strike days, this will have a major impact on their services, with many parts of the network having no service whatsoever. Trains that are planned to run will be subject to short notice changes and cancellations. They are also expecting there to be an impact on the days before and after strikes.


Their teams are working to get journey planners updated as well as their dedicated webpage at as soon as possible. They will also be making customers aware through station and on board announcements, station posters, and traditional and social media.


There are further RMT strike dates affecting Cross-country services only on Saturday 19 August and Saturday 9 September. For further information on this please visit
