Planned train strikes to affect travel to college (Jan 2024)

23 January 2024

The ASLEF union have announced additional industrial action, including strike action, which will affect train services in our area next week.

Strike action has been confirmed on Tuesday 30 January, which means no Southern, Gatwick Express or Thameslink services will run on this day.

An overtime ban is also in place on services from Monday 29 January until Tuesday 6 February (inclusive), which will see an amended timetable in place. 

Unfortunately, this means students and staff who use the rail network will once again experience disrupted and cancelled services throughout the week – including on non-strike days. 

The college will be open and operating as usual during this time. If you are due to be in college, we would ask that you try to make alternative arrangements to attend. 

If you are unable to get to college on these days due to the industrial action on the rail services, please make sure you speak to your course tutor and pastoral support tutor ahead of the planned strike action to make alternative arrangements.
