Overtime ban starts tomorrow I think?
Cancellations to services on all routes
Due to industrial action:
Train services running across the whole Great Western Railway network may be cancelled or revised. Disruption is expected until the end of the day on 30/09/23.
Customer Advice
On Friday 29th September, members of the ASLEF» (Associated Society of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen - about) union are engaging in Industrial Action short of a strike. Our intention is to run as many services as possible, but some short notice cancellations or alterations to services across the GWR (Great Western Railway) network are to be expected. Please check both your outward and return journey before setting out for the latest information.
In addition, on Saturday 30th September and Wednesday 4th October, an extremely limited service will be in operation across the GWR network due to strike action by members of the ASLEF union. Many stations and routes will not be served at all, with services that are running expected to be busy.

Personal opinion only.  Writings not representative of any union, collective, management or employer. (Think that absolves me...........)
