Most Underground services should be unaffected after then. \nThere is also a strike by Aslef on Greater Anglia trains on Thursday (June 23) and Croydon Tramlink on June 28 and June 29, and on July 13 and July 14). An Aslef strike on Hull Trains on Sunday (June 26) has been called off.\nThe chaos will continue on Wednesday, with only 60 per cent of trains running, mainly due to a delay to the start of services as signallers and control room staff are not doing overnight shifts. \nAll those travelling tomorrow should stay up to date with the latest news from their service providers, with disruption to timetables expected across the country. ","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"L Dollimore"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/live/article-10934661/UK-rail-strikes-latest-TfL-tube-train-updates-day-one.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2022/06/21/11/59334615-0-image-m-28_1655808929296.jpg"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"POLL: Almost half (45%) of all Brits oppose this week's rail strikes - with big variations depending...","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/live/article-10934661/UK-rail-strikes-latest-TfL-tube-train-updates-day-one.html#lc-id-179","dateModified":"2022-06-21T18:58:01+01:00","datePublished":"2022-06-21T18:38:18+01:00","articleBody":"","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"L Dollimore"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/live/article-10934661/UK-rail-strikes-latest-TfL-tube-train-updates-day-one.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2022/06/21/11/59334615-0-image-m-28_1655808929296.jpg"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"What you NEED to know about rail strikes this week, as services to be severely impacted even on non-strike...","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/live/article-10934661/UK-rail-strikes-latest-TfL-tube-train-updates-day-one.html#lc-id-178","dateModified":"2022-06-21T18:32:43+01:00","datePublished":"2022-06-21T18:32:43+01:00","articleBody":"MailOnline looks at how the rail strike could affect you - and what other action could be on the horizon.

The action involves members of the RMT at Network Rail and 13 operators. It will also have a knock-on effort on services on the three days after each strike day - tomorrow (June 22), Friday (June 24) and Sunday (June 26). Separately, another strike is being held by the RMT and Unite on London Underground today (June 21) which will affect services until 8am tomorrow (June 22). Most Underground services should be unaffected after then.  There is also a strike by Aslef on Greater Anglia trains on Thursday (June 23) and Croydon Tramlink on June 28 and June 29, and on July 13 and July 14). An Aslef strike on Hull Trains on Sunday (June 26) has been called off. The chaos will continue on Wednesday, with only 60 per cent of trains running, mainly due to a delay to the start of services as signallers and control room staff are not doing overnight shifts.  All those travelling tomorrow should stay up to date with the latest news from their service providers, with disruption to timetables expected across the country.  18:38 POLL: Almost half (45%) of all Brits oppose this week's rail strikes - with big variations depending whether they vote Labour or Tory Britons tend to oppose the rail workers strikes taking place this weekAll Britons Support 37% / Oppose 45%Con voters Support 18% / Oppose 72%Lab votersSupport 65% / Oppose 18%https://t.co/0J86iNrRWO pic.twitter.com/KHoARzP4tj— YouGov (@YouGov) June 21, 2022 18:32 What you NEED to know about rail strikes this week, as services to be severely impacted even on non-strike days MailOnline looks at how the rail strike could affect you - and what other action could be on the horizon.

Hospital food supply worker Marie, from Chingford, Essex, told the PA news agency she was forced to walk for 40 minutes from Liverpool Street to Waterloo on Tuesday morning. 'On a day like today it’s OK, but it’s not ideal is it?' she said. She added that it was not possible for her to work from home, adding: 'I am sorry, but I don’t have any sympathy for those that were on strike because there are loads of people who have worked right through the pandemic, myself included. 'We can’t go on strike just at the drop of a hat so I don’t have any sympathy.' She said she did not know how she was going to get home: 'Now I’m in a hurry to get home because the trains aren’t running the other way and I don’t know how I’m going to get home.'

The Prime Minister warned commuters they must be ready to 'stay the course' and urged rail bosses and unions to agree on a modernisation package to safeguard the future of the industry. He told the Cabinet that, without fundamental changes to the way the system operates, rail firms risk going bust and passengers face ever-higher prices that could ultimately lead to them abandoning train travel. It comes as commuters endured the biggest rail strike in a generation, causing transport misery for millions, with further action by the RMT union set for Thursday and Saturday.

Just 20 per cent of normal services are expected to run on the three strike days. Every UK rail operator will be affected by the action, with most running a limited service between 7.30am and 6.30pm on these days.  These operators running a limited service on the strike days are: Avanti West Coast, c2c, Chiltern Railways, CrossCountry, East Midlands Railway, Eurostar, Grand Central, Great Northern, Great Western Railway, Greater Anglia, Heathrow Express, Hull Trains, LNER, London Northwestern Railway, Lumo, Northern, ScotRail, South Western Railway, Southeastern, Southern, Stansted Express, Thameslink, TransPennine Express, Transport for Greater Manchester, Transport for Wales and West Midlands Railway. Three operators say they will have no service on strike days – those being Gatwick Express, Caledonian Sleeper and Merseyrail. The only unaffected area is the Isle of Wight where the Island Line will run a normal service. In London, the national rail strike means there will be a reduced service on the Overground and Elizabeth line on the three strike days. And the separate Tube strike today cancelled almost all Underground trains.  TfL Tube and train strike dates: When are the walkouts? Almost all stations across Scotland and Wales are completely cut off by the rail strike, while there are also no services to Penzance, Bournemouth, Chester or Blackpool.

Members of the Communication Workers Union (CWU) will vote in the coming weeks on whether to mount a campaign of industrial action. Ballot papers will go out on June 28 and the result will be known next month. CWU deputy general secretary Terry Pullinger said in a video posted on Twitter: 'Today we will be serving a notice on Royal Mail Group over a pay claim - our claim for an inflation-based, no-strings pay award. 'The company has imposed a 2% pay award, miles away from where inflation is, totally inadequate.' 16:21 Big queues on the A40 Western Avenue Westbound in Hammersmith as commuters attempt early escape from the office to beat worst of strike-induced traffic misery Long q's #A40 Western Avenue Westbound from before the Northern Rbt to Hanger Lane / #A406.Slow #A406 Northbound from Gunnersbury Park to A40. pic.twitter.com/SAiSUV7BhH— BBC Radio London Travel (@BBCTravelAlert) June 21, 2022 16:17 Now disruption through Shenfield is expected to last until at least 6PM, National Rail warns ⚠️NEW: Disruption through #Shenfield expected until 18:00ℹ️https://t.co/6Cv49Fs3pG— National Rail (@nationalrailenq) June 21, 2022 16:14 'It's barely worth opening': London pub boss reveals he is facing 25 PER CENT plunge in sales as Mick Lynch's mass rail strikes deliver crushing hammerblow to hospitality sector A London pub boss has revealed he is facing a 25% plunge in sales as Mick Lynch's mass rail strikes deliver a crushing hammerblow to Britain's beleaguered hospitality sector.  Clive Watson, founder of City Pub Group, said it is 'barely worth opening' some sites near train stations, due to the impact of industrial action today, Thursday June 23 and Saturday June 25.

Passengers on the Elizabeth line using the west (Paddington to Reading and Heathrow) and east (Liverpool Street to Shenfield) branches are advised to complete their journeys by 4pm. And the London Overground services that are running today are set to finish around 6pm. 15:34 Points failure between Tamworth and Birmingham New Street Passengers using CrossCountry services today now face more disruption on top of the strike action because a points failure between Tamworth and Birmingham New Street means some lines are currently blocked.

Now, a lineside fire between Tottenham Hale and Hackney Downs means services will again be disrupted and will have to divert via Seven Sisters, to and from London Liverpool Street. This will cause problems for those trying to get to or from Stansted Airport - and disruption is set to continue until 6pm - which is around the time today's limited service will end. ❗ #TottenhamHale - Due to a line side fire between Tottenham Hale and Hackney Downs services will be disrupted.Emergency services are on route to the affected area.Services will divert via Seven Sisters, to and from London Liverpool Street.— Stansted Express (@Stansted_Exp) June 21, 2022 15:22 Rail strikes force students back to online learning Schools are offering pupils in non-exam years remote lessons if they cannot get in today, as Mick Lynch's mass strikes sow mayhem for millions of students. Read MailOnline's full report here: Rail strikes force students back to online learning Schools are offering pupils in non-exam years remote lessons if they cannot get in today, as Mick Lynch's mass strikes sow mayhem for millions of students sitting GCSEs and A-levels. Mail Online 15:21 How Britain suffered from pay disputes and violent clashes 100 years ago More than a century ago, strikes caused food shortages and led to violent clashes between police and workers. In parallel to today, the period between the First and Second World War was marked by economic difficulties, labour and supply shortages, high inflation and a cost-of-living crisis. The country's first national rail strike came in the summer of 1911 and involved 200,000 of the country's 600,000 railway workers.

No negotiations are expected to take place between the RMT union and Network Rail before the next two strike days, so it seems most likely that the industrial action will continue on Thursday and Saturday. This means services will be impacted up to and including Sunday. 15:10 How many trains will run on Wednesday? Only around 60 per cent of the 20,000 normal weekday services will be able to operate tomorrow. Walkouts by signallers and control room staff who would usually work overnight from tonight into tomorrow morning means trains will leave depots later than normal, delaying the start of services. Trains normally leave depots between around 3am and 4am, and passengers services usually begin between around 5am and 6am. The process of taking trains out of depots will only begin when signallers on daytime shifts start work at 6am to 6.30am, and no passenger services will run before 6.30am. The start of services is set to be delayed by up to four hours in some locations – although in London, services will increase quickly as trains do not have to travel long distances from depots to stations. 15:08 What times are the last trains home out of London thisa fternoon? Here is a list of some of the last trains scheduled home tonight as it stands - but please check with your operator if travelling, in case these change: c2c - London Fenchurch Street5.05pm - Shoeburyness5.37pm - Grays Chiltern Railways - London Marylebone3.10pm - Banbury4.10pm - Bicester North Greater Anglia - London Liverpool Street4.25pm - Cambridge4.30pm - Norwich and Ipswich5.30pm - Southend Victoria5.40pm - Stansted Airport Thameslink/Great Northern - London King's Cross3.27pm - Ely5.15pm - Peterborough5.32pm - Cambridge Thameslink/Great Northern - London St Pancras5.34pm - Luton5.49pm - Beford Thameslink/Great Northern - London Bridge5.35pm - Brighton6.05pm - Gatwick Airport Southern - London Victoria5.30pm - Sutton5.50pm - Brighton Great Western Railway - London Paddington5.22pm - Swindon5.41pm - Slough5.48pm - Reading South Western Railway – London Waterloo5pm – Southampton5.22pm - Windsor5.50pm - Woking 14:47 Last Chiltern Railways train from London to Banbury at 3.10pm Chiltern Railways has warned passengers that the last northbound trains out of London Marylebone are the 3.10pm to Banbury and the 4.10pm to Bicester North Due to Industrial strike action today, we are operating a timetable which will finish much earlier than usual.

In contrast, footfall in Outer London and market towns only changed very slightly, which Springboard said is 'synonymous with home working as it is easier for people who are in their home offices to visit their local high street during working hours'. Diane Wehrle, insights director at Springboard, added: 'The drop in footfall in Central London and regional cities means that the gap from the 2019 footfall level has widened considerably - to -49.2% and -29.8%, which are levels that are equivalent to those recorded during lockdown. In contrast on market towns the gap from the 2019 footfall level has narrowed to just -2.5% below 2019 and -13.4% in Outer London.' 14:16 Passengers show their appreciation for LNER still running some trains Not all rail passengers were left frustrated by the rail strike, with these two women thanking LNER for running services to and from the North East and Scotland: Thank you ⁦@LNER⁩ for keeping some trains running today.

Nicole Perl, 33 was forced to spend £50 on a taxi to make it to London Euston Station on time to make the last Scotland-bound train which would take her to her home in Carlisle. She said: 'I checked the trains yesterday when I arrived back from Stansted Airport and they seemed to be running fairly regularly, every two hours or so up until 6pm and it seemed to be the case this morning as well. But when I checked again at noon it said the last train was at 1:30pm so it was a bit of a rush to get here. It was quite stressful and sweaty.

He set out why he believed the strikes were 'so wrong and so unnecessary', pointing to the levels of support offered to the industry during the pandemic and the 'colossal' investment in rail infrastructure. 'We believe in our railways, we believe in our railway infrastructure as a vital part of levelling up across the country,' he said. 10:07 Teachers and binmen join rail strike picket outside Coventry station Refuse collectors from Unite and other union members from the National Education Union have joined the striking rail staff at a picket in Coventry today: Workers stand together.

'We need the union barons to sit down with Network Rail and the train companies and get on with it,' he said. 'We need, I'm afraid, everybody, and I say this to the country as a whole, we need to get ready to stay the course. 'To stay the course, because these reforms, these improvements in the way we run our railways are in the interests of the travelling public, they will help to cut costs for farepayers up and down the country.' But the modernisation programme was also in the interests of workers because 'if we don't do this, these great companies, this great industry, will face further financial pressure, it will go bust and the result will be they have to hike up the cost of tickets still further'.

Passengers wait at a bus stop outside Clapham Junction station in South West London today 09:38 Demonstrators gather at Bristol Temple Meads station this morning A small crowd of demonstrators gathered at Bristol Temple Meads station this morning. Amanda Testa, branch secretary of the RMT in Bristol, said the strikes are not just about pay, but also about protecting pensions and working conditions on the railway. The union says tens of millions of pounds paid to rail operators under Covid-19 emergency measures were paid out as dividends to foreign investors. Ms Testa said the strikes are 'about the fact Covid is being used as the reason not to give us a pay rise and the cost of Covid to business while profits remain protected'. She described the offered 2 per cent pay rise as 'insulting' in light of current inflation, and said it is being used to strong-arm employees into accepting pension reforms and alterations to the terms and conditions of their contracts.

This is up on the average of 67 per cent in 2019 and 54 per cent in 2021. The congestion level represents the extra travel time for drivers on average compared to baseline uncongested conditions - so a 98 per cent level means a 30-minute trip will take 29 minutes more than with no traffic.

He told Sky News: 'What we will do in the future is we'll make sure we've put in some additional protections in place for the travelling public, for example through minimal service levels. That would mean on a day like today a certain level of service would still have to be run and through changes to allow for transferable workers, that's a much quicker change we could take. 'For future strikes, both in this current but also for other strikes, we are going to ensure that the law is firmly on the passengers side. One of the ways is through transferable skills, or agency workers, as you call it. And there are a number of other technical changes we can make to union laws to make sure the public is always protected.'

The strikes involve a row over pay, jobs and conditions. The RMT wants pay rises for workers that recognise the RPI rate of inflation, which is currently 11.1 per cent, and a guarantee of no compulsory redundancies. The union has claimed that Network Rail plans to cut jobs and reduce spending – with an impact on safety. It says that it is striking 'due to the inability of the rail employers to come to a negotiated settlement with RMT'. The RMT claims Network Rail and train operators have 'subjected their staff to multi-year pay freezes and plan to cut thousands of jobs', while also accusing the Government of 'abjectly failing in their responsibilities'. But Network Rail and the Government say the union is unwilling to modernise work practices. Despite a pay freeze in 2021 – during the height of the pandemic – Network Rail has offered a rise of at least 2 per cent for 2022. 07:25 Woman arrives back in UK from flight from Egypt to find train cancelled At Birmingham New Street station, a few would-be passengers and commuters were trying to work out their travel plans this morning, gazing at timetables on their phones and the destination on the main concourse.

He told BBC Radio Scotland's Good Morning Scotland programme: 'This is not the first option, this is the last resort for our members.' Mr Martin added: 'It's a fight that we didn't want, this is a defensive action by this trade union but it will be 'til we get a reasonable settlement and the members have made that abundantly clear to me and others. 'This is a defensive measure by our members in defence of their jobs, their terms and conditions and, I would argue, the safety of the rail industry.' 07:23 Commuters in Manchester are forced to take buses during rail strikes Our reporter at Manchester Piccadilly station this morning says that where there are 14 platforms, only one train is on the tracks.

Season ticket holders who choose not to travel on the three strike days can claim 100 per cent compensation for these days through the 'Delay Repay' scheme via the operator you were due to be travelling with. ​​​If you have purchased a season ticket but would like a full refund due to the strike action affecting your journey, you can apply for a refund from the original retailer of your ticket, but a fee of up to £10 could apply. National Rail added: 'Refunds are calculated from the date you return your season ticket to the original retailer and will be the difference between the price you paid, and the cost of any ticket or tickets for the period for which you have used your season ticket, up to and including the date you request a refund.' 07:05 Can you get a refund on my train ticket during the rail strike? National Rail has confirmed that anyone who had booked a ticket for a service which has been cancelled, delayed or rescheduled will be entitled to a change or refund from the original retailer of their ticket. If you have a ticket for travel on a strike day, you can use this ticket either on the day before the date on the ticket, or through and including the Monday and Tuesday of next week - excluding season tickets. However, National Rail has warned of an exception in that if your ticket is for a journey that crosses London, it will not be valid on Underground services on an alternative date. Contact your ticket provider if this applies to you. You may be able to use your ticket on another train company or an alternative route as disruption continues, with passengers advised to contact the train company they are due to travel with for more information. 07:04 Which London Underground lines are running this morning?
