Northern Industrial Action

Important travel info

Northern and MerseyRail strike action

On Saturday 03 March 2018 conductors employed by Northern (who are members of the RMT union) have planned industrial action.

Although TransPennine Express services will be running as usual, Northern will only be able to run a limited number of train services therefore many of our trains will be much busier than usual.
This may cause small delays to some services, so please allow extra time where possible to complete your journey.

Ticket Info

If you have an Advance Purchase ticket (marked as TPE & connections) for travel on this strike date where part of your journey requires travelling on a Northern service either to connect with a TransPennine Express service or to complete your journey, then you may travel on the day before or the day after the strike day without having to make changes to your ticket.

You should attempt to travel as close as possible to your original booked time, but because you are travelling on a different day, your seat reservation will no longer be valid.

This only applies to Advance Purchase tickets. If you have any other ticket type then you must travel within the restrictions set out for that ticket.

Industrial action is also planned to take place on the MerseyRail network on Saturday 03 March 2018.
