Stop the rail strikes! Sign our petition




Following the news that there are 27 days of planned rail strikes in December, Liberal Democrat candidates Sarah Olney (Richmond Park and North Kingston), Munira Wilson (Twickenham), Ed Davey (Kingston and Surbiton), Paul Kohler (Wimbledon), Sue Wixley (Putney), Monica Harding (Esher and Walton) and Mark Gitsham (Battersea) are writing to South Western Railway and the RMT to demand that they stop the planned strikes immediately. 


Members of the RMT will walk out for 27 days throughout December, causing chaos to commuters, to businesses and to people travelling for Christmas. 


We urge commuters to sign our petition to call off these strikes now. 

We, the undersigned, urge that SWR and RMT return to the negotiating table with their respective teams, and secure a resolution to the ongoing industrial dispute regarding guards and driver-operated trains immediately - and that these strikes are called off now.
