THE ASLEF UNION is set to strike again next month, bringing disruption to rail passengers. 

Industrial action will affect Great Western Railway on Wednesday, May 8. 

GWR has not yet said how the strikes will affect the Tarka or Dartmoor lines through Crediton. 

There will also be an overtime ban between Monday, May 6 and Saturday, May 11. This means trains could be altered or cancelled at short notice.  

“If you are travelling during this period, you should check both outward and return journeys before travelling,” a GWR spokesperson said. 

“On Wednesday, May 8, a reduced, revised timetable will operate across several train operators, including GWR.  

“Many parts of the GWR network will have no service at all and trains that are running will only be operating for a limited period during the day.  

“The days before and after strikes, services could also be affected by a limited number of short-notice cancellations and alterations.” 

If you’ve already bought a ticket for a strike day, you can get a full refund or amend your ticket.  

Tickets for strike days will also be valid for travel on alternative days on GWR services, further details of which will be provided soon.   

Season-ticket holders can apply for compensation through the Delay Repay scheme. 

Strikes will also affect other rail companies across the UK between May 7 and May 9.  

Industrial action will hit South Western Railway, which operates between Exeter and London Waterloo, on Tuesday, May 7.
