Rail Strike Disruption

(BBC) – RAIL PASSENGERS WERE WARNED to expect disruption as workers with the train operator providing services in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex prepare to strike.

The Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union and Aslef workers at National Express East Anglia begin the first of three planned strikes on Thursday.

The 48-hour action is part of a dispute over pay and conditions.

The rail company said if members from both unions strike ‘we would not expect to be able to run any train services.’

If strike action does take place, passengers were advised to consider alternative routes.

In Essex, passengers were advised to use C2C services from Southend to London.
