There is no word yet on if train services will run tomorrow.

As reported earlier, commuters have been left stranded today with the cancellation of services across the network.

The State Government and the Rail, Tram and Bus Union (RTBU) have traded barbs all day over who is to blame for crippling the train network.

But what commuters really want to know if they’ll be able to get to work and school tomorrow – and there’s still no answer.

It is understood negotiations are continuing with all relevant parties.

Earlier today, Prime Minister Scott Morrison claimed the unions had “shut down the city with a massive big strike”.

“There are people who this morning are going to have an overpriced Uber, or they’re going to be unable to get to work,” he told 2GB.

“This is just not how you behave, and this is not how you treat your fellow citizens.”
