Overground Ticket Offices Hours to be Cut

A strong campaign by RMT and local Labour Parties made London Overground drop its plans to close nearly all of its ticket offices. But the company now plans to go ahead with cutting their opening hours, despite objections.

London Overground workers to strike

Travel Safe Officers employed by the STM Agency on the London Overground (Arriva Rail London) contract will strike on 2 April.

Stop London Overground Ticket Office Closures!

Following in London Underground's footsteps, London Overground now plans to close nearly all its ticket offices.

Canada Water station (on the Jubilee Line and London Overground) is to be renamed "Buxton Water" for a day on Sunday 26 April, to tie in with Buxton's co-sponsorship of the London Marathon which takes place that day.

This is the first time a Tube station has been named after a commercial sponsor...

Overground Guards Strike Back

Two days of solid strike action have seen London Overground guards seriously crank up the momentum of their fight to save their jobs.

There was well-organised picketing at all three booking-on locations - Willesden, Gospel Oak and Stratford - and very little scabbing. At least two drivers refused...
