Industrial action to shut down Cotswold Line again

Cotswold Line train services are set to be disrupted again by industrial action for much of the rest of May.

Due to strikes over pay and conditions by train drivers who are members of the Aslef union on Friday, May 12, and by train managers and other GWR staff who are members of the RMT union on Saturday, May 13, trains will not run on most of the GWR network, including between Oxford, Worcester and Hereford.

The suspension of services on Saturday, May 13, will prevent travel to the CLPG’s AGM by rail. Click here for more information about the meeting, bus services to Moreton-in-Marsh and car parking in the town.

There will be further disruption from Monday, May 15, to Saturday, May 20, and on Thursday, June 1, due to industrial action short of a strike. This is likely to cause some short-notice alterations or cancellations to train services. Passengers should check their journey before setting out to a station.
