Strike action is due to take place on the Southeastern network on three days next month, with the first this Saturday (October 1).
Action will also be taken on Wednesday, October 5 and Saturday, October 8.
This Saturday members of the ASLEF, RMT and TSSA unions are taking strike action in a dispute over pay, conditions and safety fears.
RMT represents conductors, platform staff, shunters, ticket office staff, signallers and Network Rail workers. ASLEF is the train drivers union and TSSA ((Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association)) represents a range of roles including station staff, Control and admin and manager roles.
There will be no trains running on the Southeastern network on October 1.
On October 5 action is being taken by ASLEF members. There will again be no Southeastern services running on the rail network.
On October 8 there will be a limited service running on the rail network and some routes will be closed. The following day services are likely to start running from 7am when Network Rail staff begin their shifts.
First trains may be busy, and queueing systems will be in place to manage space on trains.

Cue the Ramsgate Popular Front…
Power to the people
Keep it going lads & ladies.
All supermarkets are going on strike for two days at a time each month also!
Will people support them or just expect them to open up eo they can get abused daily because they are looked upon like crap?
I wish they would! Might encourage people to use proper butchers, bakers, greengrocers, hardware shops, etc., instead.
If they were still around people might.
They are in Birchington (no fishmongers though!).
I think Ono made it up by the way.
Yep, sadly it is pretty much impossible in Margate & I suspect Ramsgate to find DIY stores, Ironmongers, Fruit & Veg shops etc-unless it is Market Day.
Northdown Road had wonderful shops like Padgets & James Decor. Not sure what exactly is up there currently, but for many years after JD closed you have had to venture to Westwood instead.
Cannot find this-are you sure? Most will just adjust their shopping day accordingly.
I agree with Steve’s comment although all our food shopping is done in Ramsgate If I want DIY etc I am forced to WWX and I hate the place, Knock it down and put the houses back!
I hate WWX too! Only go there a couple of times per year (usually for TKMaxx and Primark).
Talking of supermarkets, i went to Tesco & see the prices have gone up again. Aldi it is then.
Only Waitrose for me.
