Strike Action Overview

Share

There is currently a lot of news coverage of strike action in public transport companies. We understand that it can be confusing when this does and when it doesn’t affect Merseyrail services.

Merseyrail staff are not involved in any strikes, however, strike action in other organisations can have a significant impact on the service we can run. 

Below is a summary of all confirmed strike action dates and how they affect Merseyrail. We will keep this page updated with any further dates announced.
