Train strikes due to take place this weekend and next week have been suspended by the RMT Union.

Members of the Union were due to strike on Saturday 5, Monday 7 and Wednesday 9 November, resulting in limited services on these days, and disruption into the following days.

However, this afternoon (4 November), the RMT has announced that it has suspended these strikes "after securing intensive negotiations with rail bosses".

This means that its members won't be striking on these days now, though depending how those negotiations go, we could see further strike action in future — the results of a further ballot for strike action are due on 15 November.

In a separate dispute, RMT members working for TfL and London Overground (Arriva Rail London) are due to strike on 10 November. At the moment, there's been no mention of this action being cancelled.

We're still advised to check before we travel on Saturday, as the late notice cancellation of the strikes has left some operators unable to reinstate services in time.
