Some Network Rail members of the TSSA and Unite unions have joined the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) in voting in favour of industrial action.
The below table shows dates of the planned strikes and the likely impact on freight services:
Wednesday 27 July and Thursday 18 August are likely to be most challenging, with the other strikes planned for the weekend when very little freight is moved.
Our teams are working hard to minimise the potential disruption, working closely with inland terminals, rail providers and road suppliers. We will be in touch regarding any affected bookings.
