The ASLEF union has announced strike action for CrossCountry drivers on 13 August 2022. As a result, no CrossCountry services will run on this day.

While talks will continue to resolve the strike, CrossCountry is warning passengers of widespread disruption should the strike go ahead.

CrossCountry’s Managing Director, Tom Joyner, said: “While we hope that we can resolve this dispute, we want to give our customers as much notice as possible to plan ahead should the action go ahead.

If there is a strike, we are unlikely to be able to run any services across the network. We are of course, disappointed to be in this position and apologise for the severe disruption it will cause customers.”

There will be no rail replacement buses to replace trains not running because of the strikes. Passengers travelling on the morning of Sunday 14 August should check train times in advance and consider starting their journey later.

Strike action is also taking place at eight other train operators across the country with passengers being urged to plan ahead and check before they travel.
