Rail stakes hitting Merseyside's Major Events

FOR those on the train, its a Summer from hell as Northern, Merseyrail and Southern Rail face more strike action, as The Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) begin fresh walkouts. The Trade Union taking action over disagreements with rail operators bringing in so called driver only operated trains and changes to the role of the guard. The result is 3 straight days of walkouts on Arriva Rail North, which trades as Northern. Merseyrail staff are striking on 8 July, 10 July and 23 July 2017. We are told that workers on Southern Rail plan to walk out on Monday, 10 July 2017. For Merseyside, this is a major issue, as the strikes, on 8 July 2017, affects those attending the The Clothes Show British Style Collective, the biggest fashion event outside London. Plus The Open will be affected, on 23 July 2017, when the worlds media will be in Southport for the Golf. Already this year strike action has affected The Grand National, another major event, that has had the eyes of the world focused on Merseyside. These latest strikes as a local business owner said:- "Could not come at a worse time. In Southport, small businesses are relying on the cash from visitors to The Open, to be spent within the Town Centre. Businesses are struggling, so if this strike goes ahead on the very last day of the Golf, it will have a huge impact on the area. It will put people off celebrating afterwards within the Town Centre." What are your views on the strike? Is it affecting your plans? Please let us know via emailing us to:-
