Rail passengers on the Uckfield Line face another day of no trains on Tuesday, June 21, with a further strike by conductor members of the RMT Union.
A statement by the rail operator said: “We continue to urge the RMT to engage with us and avert these completely unnecessary strikes.
“However, should the strike go ahead it will have a significant effect on Southern services on the whole of the day affected, with no service on many routes and only a limited service between approximately 07.30 and 18.00 on others, though we will extend the services hours if we are able.”
Services continue to be cancelled because of a lack of staff which Southern blames on a “high level of conductor sickness”.
The company and union are involved in a bitter dispute over conductors becoming on-board supervisors with drivers operating the doors.
