More travel disruption is faced by London commuters on Wednesday as active round of strikes gets underway.

Services across many train companies are expected to be severely hampered because of walkouts by the Aslef train drivers union on Wednesday and Saturday, June 3 in the row over pay and conditions.

Meanwhile, the RMT union has also called a strike for Friday, June 2. The strike will affect services on 15 trains due to starting later and finishing much earlier than usual – typically between 7:30 am and 6: 30 pm.
Aslef will also start an overtime ban from June 1, which could affect some services in and out of the capital.

Among those affected are likely to be football fans attempting to travel to London for the FA Cup final between Manchester City and Manchester United at Wembley.

A spokesperson shared that the upcoming rail strikes called by the Aslef and RMT leadership will not only affect their passengers’ daily commute but will also impact those travelling from to the FA Cup final and other events across the country, causing disappointment and frustration for tens of thousands of people.
