Rail strike day looms with no services on Uckfield Line

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.”

Details on the Southern website

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.
