Is tomorrow a strike day? How the RMT rail walkout on Saturday will affect the trains and when the strikes will end

The third and final rail strike, scheduled for tomorrow, will end a week of chaos for travelers in England, Wales, and Scotland.

The action, which is the largest rail strike in 30 years, involves railroad workers at Network Rail and 13 train-operating companies and is about pay, jobs, conditions, and pensions.

Numerous events, including Edinburgh Pride, are anticipated to be impacted by Saturday’s strike.

When is the next strike?

A third walkout is scheduled for Saturday, June 25, by members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) at Network Rail and 13 train operators.

Although it is recommended to stay away from travel unless it is absolutely necessary, you can contact National Rail Enquiries for more information about your trip. As more people try to avoid the strike by driving, the roads will be much busier. Again, the recommendation is to only travel if absolutely necessary. If you do, make sure to give yourself plenty of time and bring water with you.

Which services are affected?
