Northern issues fresh travel advice ahead of latest RMT strike on Saturday

Industrial action by the RMT union on Saturday (29 July) is set to disrupt thousands of Northern customers this weekend.

RMT members will bring all but a handful of Northern services across the North of England to a halt.

Due to the impact strikes have on fleet displacement, early morning services on Sunday (30 July) are also expected to be disrupted.

Tricia Williams, chief operating officer at Northern, said:

“For the third time this month, thousands of our customers will be inconvenienced as a result of action by the RMT union.

“We all want to see an end to this dispute and the uncertainty that on-going strike action causes to people’s confidence in the railway.”

Northern is the second largest train operator in the UK, with 2,500 services a day to more than 500 stations across the North of England.
