Ongoing London public transport strike action thread


Recommended Posts

Have just heard some very bad news that from October 5th some bus garages are going on strike ….indefinitely!! 
Unfortunately it’s mostly the North London area garages …so affecting quite a few buses I catch regularly ( on a weekly basis) 

Luckily not affecting the No. 30! 
But will mean two buses instead of one on a couple of journeys now.

I heard as of 4th October, and that it was Arriva, who appear to be based in South London?  Is this additional action?

 

I've branched this off into a new thread for TfL services and so on, to keep it separate from the UK-wide rail strikes.

I read this on Facebook and definitely North London and then gave a huge list of buses affected including some of my regulars like 19,38 73 and 341 but there’s a lot in the list. 
Am just glad the 30 isn't affected…well not yet! 
I know it sounds awful but I wonder if the whole lot of them bus and rail would just go on an all out strike that this wouldn’t get everybody talking to resolve the issues much more quickly than is happening currently.

Will put this here as well as is more local to London as well as Nationwide

RMT union are in addition calling a strike on Saturday May 8th so this may affect people who use Thameslink to get to London and who may be wanting to get to Mayerling that day.

I’ve just heard the planned London bus strike due to start on Oct 4th has been called off while they are considering some new pay offer. 
Let’s hope it’s good enough for them to accept so one less thing to worry about!!!
