3 further days of strike action on Merseyrail network over driver only operated trains
Talks between the RMT union, LCRCA Mayor Steve Rotheram, Cllr Liam Robinson and Frank Rogers have not averted three days of strike action on the Merseyrail network planned for Friday 1st September, Sunday 3rd September and Monday 4th September.
The dispute is about the introduction of trains in 2020 which will be operated solely by a driver rather than a driver and a guard.
Trains will not be running between Hooton and Ellesmere Port on the three strike days.
Details of the reduced service running to a strike timetable are on Merseyrail’s website. There will be a period of a few hours during the middle of the day when no trains on the Merseyrail network will run.
