|Another Strike Planned on Local Rail Services|
RMT confirm three day industrial action later this month
There is to be further strike action in the ongoing dispute about the role of guards on South Western Railway.
The RMT union has instructed members not to book on duty from Thursday 21 June until Saturday 23 June.
The strike, if it goes ahead, will affect services at stations such as Putney, Wimbledon, Wandsworth, Chiswick and Brentford.
South Western Railway said, “ We will do everything we can to minimise disruption to you during this period of industrial action. More information will be provided on our website in due course.”
The union claim that safety is compromised unless there is an absolute guarantee of a guard on all trains. South Western Railway say that they will roster guards on all services but that trains should be allowed to run in the event of one not being available. They argue that there is no evidence of any greater risk with a driver only operated train.
