Industrial action will cause cancellations to LNER trains and busy services

Over 40,000 staff members from Network Rail and 13 train operators intend on walking out, over three days next week: Tuesday, June 21; Thursday, June 23; and Saturday, June 25.

The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) called the three 24-hour strikes, in dispute of working conditions, redundancies and pay.

London North Eastern Railway (LNER) have announced changes to services and will be running around 38% of usual trains over these dates.
