I hate to drag people back to the strikes, but it seems Northern will not be operating a single service in South Yorkshire on any of the strike days.

 

Only routes they are running below. Manchester with no services either, or Newcastle.

 

  • Darlington - Saltburn
  • Liverpool Lime Street - Alderley Edge
  • York - Leeds
  • Ilkley - Bradford Forster Square - Leeds
  • Skipton - Bradford Forster Square - Leeds
  • Leeds - Bradford Forster Square

 

 

 

Seems they have now decided to stretch to an hourly Leeds-Sheffield service

Very little expected to be running tomorrow and probably best not to rely on even them.

 

These are what seem to be currently planned for Sheffield;  https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/search/detailed/gb-nr:SHF/2022-06-21/0000-2359?stp=WVS&show=pax-calls&order=wtA

Did any of the people on forum watch the tv play called sherwood last night some off the script rings very true ,   Parliament today bankers rise ,working men should take a drop in pay . Johnson blabbering on about skargill and Corbyn why won,t shaps sit in on meetings . Main union boss says most off the train drivers are in different union , it is mostly for the lower payed   Cleaners etc, teachers and barristers look as if they support strike , this is all about braking the unions thatcher had a good try . Blair bid very little to reverse any of thatcher policies I was never in union but as I have grown older see that they are essential to the ordinary man

It made me laugh that the unions are celebrating that Merseyrail agreed a 7% pay rise without the intervention of the government.

 

Yet just a few days ago they and the media were attacking the government for not doing enough and intervening!

Please quote me if I am wrong ,but the rmt was backing the Mersey rail on their strike . Not negotiating with them they got their 7 percent on their own . so no need for rmt or the government to get involved  but the government would not anyway

Johnson must have been gutted this dispute was sorted out. He desperately needs a summer of discontent to get his lying mug off the front pages.

Ironically the unions are doing him a favour

Just been watching nick farage and grant shapes interview interesting fact bonus payed out in march  6 billion  ,rail workers offered  3 per. Per cent . The fox says he knows nothing about that, what should the rail workers do . Hold up their hands and say well that’s it then  .Arthur was on the picket line in Sheffield on Saturday , he once said us now you next . And boy was he right , but the press and tv did a demolition job on him ,  if you are in your 20s 30s and 40s you did not see much of it well I did , please.  Please  please we do not want more of that
