The Rail Maritime and Transport workers union has confirmed that a strike on London Overground services will go ahead this weekend after an agreement was not reached over job cuts.

The RMT claims that 130 guard jobs are at risk over plans to run driver-only services on some trains. They will walk out for 48 hours from 00:01 on Sunday August 25th.

The strike takes place over the weekend of Notting Hill Carnival and is expected to cause widespread disruptions to services, especially on the Richmond and Clapham Junction to Stratford Junction routes.

Transport for London said they were working hard to keep as many services running as possible and there will be alternative Tube, bus and rail services available.
