Due to the RMT announcing that its members will be taking further strike action on our network in March, we will be running an amended strike timetable on the following dates:
• Monday 9th March
• Tuesday 10th March
• Thursday 12th March
• Friday 13th March
Strike timetables will be published here as soon as possible. Our aim is to keep as many customers as possible moving, and we’re now exploring what additional services we may be able to run over and above our normal strike timetable.
We are disappointed that the RMT has chosen to announce further strike dates, particularly as we already have further talks planned. While we have compromised on a number of points since this dispute started, SWR is the only suburban network within London with guards still operating the doors. We have guaranteed to keep a guard on every train, but it is vital that we use the most efficient means of dispatch when we introduce our new trains so that we can deliver the improved performance our customers so desperately need.
