No SWR trains in Somerset
South Western Railway have announced details of trains running in next week’s strike action. There will be no trains running in Somerset on 13, 14, 16, and 17 December. That will effect the following stations: Crewkerne, Yeovil Junction and Templecombe.
In addition SWR say that the service on Thursday 15 December and Sunday 18 December will be hit too. Largely as a result of rolling stock being in the wrong place. They say train services will start later than usual and are likely to be very full. SWR say “customers are asked to avoid these if they can. Please only travel if absolutely necessary throughout this strike period.“
I support the strikers 100%
One of the things affecting their working conditions is the possible loss of jobs due to the proposal by the private owners and government to close all ticket offices.
Workers throughout history have gone on strike and made sacrifices to achieve benefits we take for granted today
