Please be aware of this notice regarding industrial action.
Due to planned industrial action taking place on Saturday 8 April, Northern services will be affected. This action comes as we start our journey to modernise your railway by 2020.
Our modernisation plans include significant investment in new trains, new services and more seats. We have to make changes on this journey to modernisation and we want to involve everyone as we develop our plans, from our customers and communities, to employees and their trade unions.
As part of our initial work to modernise, we are prepared to offer guarantees on jobs and pay for our conductors. Despite this offer, the RMT trade union has asked our conductors to strike for the second time on Saturday 8 April.
Our priority is to keep you informed, updated and on the move, and we are working hard to make this happen. We expect to run 822 trains, more than 32 per cent of normal services.
Please be aware that any services we are able to run will be extremely busy. Please give yourself extra time to travel and consider whether your journey is necessary.
We apologise for any inconvenience this action may cause you.
On the day, please check journeycheck.com/northern for up-to-date train running information.
