More strikes affecting commuters from Horley Station.
A series of strikes are coming up that will effect travellers from Horley Station. Southern Rail are posting the dates below at the moment.
STATEMENT FROM SOUTHERN RAIL, 1st December 2016:
The announcement by the ASLEF union earlier this week that it will be introducing an overtime ban from this Tuesday (December 6) among its Southern driver members, alongside a series of proposed strike days, will unfortunately result in severe disruption to Southern services.
Southern, like the rest of the rail industry, relies on a degree of rest day working by its drivers as part of its daily operation, and passengers are warned to expect a severely reduced and disrupted service every day while the union's overtime ban is in place.
We are currently looking at all the implications of the ASLEF announcement and what level of service we can provide. We will update our website as soon as the information becomes available. We will also advertise information at stations and via the press.
In addition strikes will affect Southern and Gatwick Express services on the following dates:
• Tuesday 6 to Thursday 8 December (RMT conductors' strike)
• Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 December (ASLEF & RMT drivers' strike)
• Friday 16 December (ASLEF & RMT drivers' strike)
• Thursday 22 to Saturday 24 December (RMT conductors' strike)
• Saturday 31 December to Monday 2 January (RMT conductors' strike)
• Monday 9 to Saturday 14 January (ASLEF & RMT drivers' strike)
We are sincerely sorry for the disruption to your work and family lives and the uncertainty we know this unnecessary and unjustified union action will cause you.
You can find out more on the Southern Rail website. < This is not a very good site. You may be better off checking the Horley Station Live Departure website, on the day you travel.
