West Wales: Strikes cause train chaos​​

trainRAILWAY strikes across Wales affected services throughout Pembrokeshire as Arriva Trains Wales drivers went on a 24-hour strike on Monday (Jan 4).
The dispute closed all train routes and saw the National Rail Enquiries website redirect users to Tuesday’s train times with the message: ‘There are no outbound journeys available on the day you selected, we have returned the next available journey’.
Arriva Trains Wales released a statement saying: ‘We deeply regret this disruption and continue to do all we can to avert strike action’.

Britain’s Largest Specialist Transport Union, RMT’s general secretary, Mick Cash said: “RMT salutes our driver members on Arriva Trains Wales who are standing rock solid, shoulder to shoulder with ASLEF colleagues in the action this morning which has closed down all services.

“This strike is about basic workplace justice and decent working conditions and it is down to the company to recognise the anger amongst the workforce shown this morning and to meet with the unions for genuine and meaningful talks on the issues in dispute.”
