No train services on midweek strike day, Northern warns customers

Northern has advised its customers across the North of England that services will be brought to a halt on Wednesday 4 October as the latest ASLEF strike takes place.
The train operator has published a travel advice calendar for Wednesday 4 October – Sunday 8 October to highlight when services will be affected.

There will be no Northern services at all on Wednesday 4 October when ASLEF members – most of whom are employed as train drivers – stage their latest walk out.

Additional disruption is expected from Monday 2 to Friday 6 October 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.

Last week, Northern also warned that due to strike action there will be no services on Saturday 30th September.

Tricia Williams, chief operating officer at Northern, said: “We apologise in advance for the significant disruption and inconvenience this action by ASLEF will cause to 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.
