The Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union has voted in favour of 27 days of strike action between 2 December 2019 and 1 January 2020.
This industrial action is in regards to a long running dispute over guards on the trains. The strikes are expected to affect all South Western Railway routes to and from London Waterloo during this period.
These planned strikes may make travelling in the run-up to Christmas, and early January much more difficult. If you are planning to travel to or from Bournemouth University by train over the festive period, make sure that you check the South Western Railway Industrial Action updates and Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
Strikes will not take place on the day of the General Election – 12 December 2019.
We recommend that before booking or making any journey by train that you check the revised timetable for your chosen date of travel. This can be found under ‘Service information’ on the SWR Industrial Action updates page. Live train updates are also available on Twitter.
