South Western Railway intends to run as near to normal service as possible. Contingency guards will be in place. Plans are in place to minimise disruption. There are more details here and many of your concerns are addressed https://www.southwesternrailway.com/plan-my-journey/RMT-Industrial-Action
As this coming weekend is the Easter Weekend, we will be aiming to run a Saturday service on Friday, Saturday and Monday. With a Sunday service on Sunday. There is also engineering work taking place in different locations. Please ensure that you check your journey before departure here https://www.journeycheck.com/swr/?#
engineer works is one thing and not minded by the passenger, its one of them things, but planning something that could disrupt everyones plans for your own self gain is another, why couldnt you disrupt the week when everyone goes to work why does it have to be the easter holiday i appreciate you have a point to make and get across as ive worked with and for unions before but you dont have to spoil thousands for family holiday, your out of order if you go ahead with this action at that time it just goes to show how heartless you can be and you only think of yourself and not your passengers, i know someone who works for the train company and i know how good you guys get it, your pay and conditions, and its bloody good lots of other workers out there dont get no where near what you do, but i dont see them messing up peoples holidays and enjoyment, you lot should be ashamed of yourselfs, a lot of people find it hard to take there families away and this might be there only hance this year and you may riun it and spoil it for them i really hope that make you proud, its crap times we live in and some of us dont get the chance to do much with and for your kids because of cost and lack of money, all the familys who would have saved and saved for this weekend, week away and you want to mess it up for the for a for more percent and a few changes to conditions, someone need to do some soul searching
Industrial action may be taken by some staff. The impact of which will be hard to judge. Contingency staff will be working hard to cover as many trains as possible. The aim is to run a full service. There will be staff who have no intention of taking industrial action. The department that you have reached here will be manned 24/7. Here, there are staff who are instrumental in ensuring the trains run. I urge you to read all of this https://www.southwesternrailway.com/plan-my-journey/RMT-Industrial-Action as it explains a lot. There will be trains, just check before departing.
i have read it all thank you, and it doesnt matter industrial action of any kind should not be taken at these times, the only people who miss out and are affected are the passengers, not you the worker or your bosses us the ones paying for the tickets, its wrong and its out of order to make us suffer i dont care what you say you cant justify it to me, weather action is taken or not, nothing should be planned at a time familys need the service the most we just want to go on holiday and dont really care abot what you want we would if you show some consideration for your passengers for that week, chose another time for your industrial action, what we want is the trains running on time and the staff at there posts so we can get on and enjoy our holidays not have the worry if we can get there or not maybe we can maybe we cant its wrong we shouldnt as a passenger be put thought this, so thanks for ruining everything yet again thats 10 peoples holiday that may or maybe not messed up enjoy your industrail action ill just sitting at home watching my kids cry there eys out because of the likes of you lot who picked th wrong time ti do this i hope your really happy with your out come
you are a public service and your priority is to the public, to ensure we get the service we pay for not to have discruption with industrial action, whatever it is your fighting over big or small we as customers should never be affected regardless, the customer come first with us you have no job and no where to work
