No services on strike day and ‘significant disruption expected,’ Northern warns customers

Northern has advised its customers across the North of England that services will be brought to a halt on Wednesday 31 January as the latest ASLEF strike takes place.  

The train operator has published a travel advice calendar for Monday 29 January – Sunday 7 February to highlight when services will be affected.

There will be no Northern services at all on Wednesday 31 January when ASLEF members – most of whom are employed as train drivers – stage their latest walk out.

Additional disruption is expected from Monday 29 January to Tuesday 6 February due to action short of strike called by ASLEF and customers are advised to check before they travel as there may be some short notice cancellations to services running on these days.

Tricia Williams, chief operating officer at Northern, said: “We urge customers to check before they travel during this period of industrial action.

“We apologise in advance for the significant disruption and inconvenience this will cause our customers.

“We hope to see a resolution to this issue in the near future and an end to the disruption these strikes cause.”

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.
