NEW Train strike dates have been announced and are set to affect services that go through Warrington stations.

Aslef, the train driver’s union, have announced that more industrial action will take place next week, with many trainlines expected to cancel all services.

The ongoing action is part of a dispute over pay and working conditions and has been ongoing for the past 20 months, since July 2022.

On Friday, April 5, Avanti West Coast and East Midland Railway will not be running any services as part of the train drivers strike.

West Midlands Trains and CrossCountry are also expected to cancel services.

TransPennine Express and Northern have confirmed that they will be affected in the industrial action, with both trainlines cancelling services on Saturday, April 6.

Other services hit by the strike next Saturday include Chiltern Railways, Great Western Railway and LNER.

A further day of industrial action is scheduled to take place on Monday, April 8, affecting services including Greater Anglia, Great Northern Thameslink and South Western Railway.

Members of the train driver’s union are also expected to refuse to work on their rest days between Thursday, April 4 to Tuesday, April 9 as part of the overtime ban.

This means that more services may be cancelled or run on an amended timetable for five days next week and commuters are advised to check before they travel.
