Greater Anglia services to run as normal during two-day guards strike

A stoppage is expected today with no trains operating across Intercity Dart and commuter routes

Ahead of the 48 hour walk out, which starts just after midnight tonight, Mr Seely said: "I am very disappointed this strike is taking place".

Irish Rail workers on the picket line at Portlaoise Train Station said that they did not want to speak to the Leinster Express on Tuesday, November 7. I condemn it. I do not believe it has anything to do with the Island.

Minister Ross who has so far not had any input on the strike action which is about to enter it's second day, has been subjected to criticism by opposition TD's and Senators including Senator Kevin Humphreys who have implored him to address the ongoing situation.

If you have a monthly or an annual ticket, you can apply to Irish Rail for a refund for the days when their service in unavailable, however, this will have to be done after the planned industrial action. Similarly, anti-social behaviour on trains could increase without the presence of a guard.

"It is a scandal that under Chris Grayling's plans for South Western protection for disabled and older people will be ripped up as there will no longer be the guarantee of a guard and instead the profits of the company will take priory over the needs of the most vulnerable in our society".

It also said it regretted the decision by the company's trade unions to schedule the strikes during November and December. As part of these discussions we have guaranteed that we will roster a Guard on every train; and that those Guards will continue to be trained in safety procedures.

This also includes information on rail replacement bus services that will be operating in certain areas. A total of 70,000 passenger journeys are made on the Dart on a daily basis, 45,000 on commuter services, and 40,000 on intercity routes. That guard has a full set of competencies.
