- Rail workers for South Western Railway have announced that they are to go on strike for the majority of December in a row over guards.
- The disruption is expected to cause travel chaos for commuters and Christmas shoppers.
- South Western Railway staff will walk out on December 2 until January 2, only returning to work on the day of the General Election.
- The strike is officially not taking place on Christmas Day or Boxing Day, but the company will not be running services on those days anyway.
- The RMT union cited SWR’s ‘unremitting failure to give assurances that their new operational model won’t move to Driver Controlled Operation – with the role of the guard butchered completely – means the union has been left with no alternative but to call further industrial action.’
- South Western Railway strike dates the union said staff will walk out from midnight on Monday December 2 until midnight 11.59pm on December 11.
- They will then go on strike again from midnight on Friday December 13 until 11.59pm on December 24.
- The third strike action will take place from Friday December 27 until 11.59pm on January 1, 2020.

This information is useful for any property located near a cinema;
On Saturday evening there was a major incident at Star City involving large numbers of youths and adults at VUE cinema.
The incident involved rival gangs fighting in which knives and machetes were used.
This took place in the reception area of VUE in front of members of the public.
Police were quick to attend the site and disperse the group, making several arrests; 7 police officers were injured and the site has received significant media attention over the event.
A similar incident occurred at Valley Centertainment on the same day, again involving rival gangs.
Initial reports indicate that machetes and a firearm were branded by members of the gangs.
Both of these incidents are allegedly connected to the showing of the new film Blue Story.
Due to this, VUE cinemas and Showcase cinemas have removed the film from scheduling and will not be showing the film on any screens.
We are asking all sites that have a cinema near their premises to brief their staff regarding the incidents that have happened at the weekend.
