Eurostar strike called off but some trains still cancelled

Strikes by Eurostar security staff on December 22 and 23 have been called off but timetables have still been revised due to industrial action on the UK rail network.

RMT members working on the Eurostar security contract for Mitie called off their strike after the company made an improved pay offer of over 10% and an uplift of nearly 30% for the lowest paid.

But due to strike action affecting the availability of crew and the opening hours on the UK railway network, Eurostar has cancelled some trains or delayed departure times on December 23 and 24.

Due to the strike action by Network Rail staff, it has also cancelled all trains on December 26.
