National rail strike

Tuesday 19th May 2015

RMT and TSSA planned 24 hour walk out, Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 May.

RMT and TSSA trade union members employed by Network Rail have voted in favour of taking industrial action, which will affect rail services throughout Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 May.

We have been talking to Network Rail about the planned strike and the impact on First Great Western services. Should action go ahead it is likely to have a significant impact on our ability to run any of our train services. We will be publishing our plans as soon as possible to allow customers to make an informed decision about their journeys. 

Full refunds will be available for customers who have already bought tickets during the industrial action period, and Season Ticket holders will be compensated for any days affected.
