The RMT Union may have suspended their strike action, but Southern are warning we still face disruption on the trains in Eastbourne.
The company says there wasn’t enough time to reverse the strike timetable, which will remain in place today (11 August) and most likely tomorrow. They say they will work to introduce additional routes and run services later where possible today and are doing everything they can to try and return to as close to the pre-strike timetable for Friday.
All this week there has been no trains been Eastbourne and Hastings and a limited service between Eastbourne and Brighton.
Conductors walked out in the ongoing bitter dispute over the introduction of driver-only trains, something they fear will compromise passenger safety – a claim firmly denied by the Southern.
The RMT and Southern are today meeting at ACAS to resume talks to try and put an end to the row.
