RMT London Overground union members are staging a two-day walkout in March with late night and early morning services affected.

RMT union members are set to take industrial action on March 4 and March 5, affecting two London Overground lines serving south London.

As a result of the strike, no services are currently expected to run before 8am and after 6pm on these days, with services that do operate anticipated to be “busier than normal.”

Customers are being advised to check before they travel on strike days, as talks to “avert” strike action continue between RMT and Arriva Rail London.

These are the services affected by the strike:

  • Gospel Oak - Barking Riverside (which will become the Suffragette line)
  • Stratford - Richmond/Clapham Junction (which will become the Mildmay line)
  • Highbury & Islington - Clapham Junction/West Croydon/Crystal Palace/New Cross (which will become the Windrush line)

On strike days, some stations will be closed, with London Overground services not stopping at the following stations:

  • Haggerston
  • Hoxton
  • Rotherhithe
  • Shadwell
  • Shoreditch High Street
  • Wapping

Customers travelling on affected routes during these days are being advised to use alternative means of travel, including London Underground, Elizabeth Line, DLR, London Trams and London bus services to complete their journeys.

Trish Ashton, TfL's Director of Rail and Sponsored services, said: “We urge the RMT and Arriva Rail London to continue to work together to find a resolution and call this strike off.  

“Customers planning to use London Overground services are urged to check before they travel, allow extra time for their journeys, and check the TfL website or the TfL Go app for the latest travel information.”
