COMMUTERS will be bracing themselves this morning (Monday) after train workers went on strike today, with disruptions to normal services expected.
The Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers' union (RMT) has staged a 24-hour walk out as of midnight last night, with delays and cancellations inevitable.
First Capital Connect (FCC), which provides train services throughout Times Territory, has said it will do its best to cover any staff taking part in the industrial action.
While the company has promised to man as many ticket offices and gates as possible, it has warned some disruption is inevitable.

This includes the likely suspension of services between Finsbury Park and Moorgate, and no services at all between 10pm today and 5am tomorrow (Tuesday).
FCC managing director Jim Morgan said: "We are doing all we can to minimise the effect of this strike and are confident we will deliver a near-normal daytime and evening service."
