RAIL commuters in the district could find their journeys in and out of London disrupted from Monday if First Capital Connect (FCC) staff carry out a 48-hour strike threat.
The RMT union is holding talks with FCC bosses today (Tuesday) to discuss fears that restricted ticket office hours will force the loss of jobs.
A FCC spokesperson said: "We are hopeful the talks will be successful but if not we have plans in place to keep disruption to a bare minimum.
"The RMT is only one of four unions we recognise. The others aren't striking so it will affect only a minority of our staff."
