  Unplanned service disruptions currently along the East Midlands route

Last updated: 28.05.2015 05:02

Proposed industrial action on Thursday 4 June until Friday 5 June and on Tuesday 9 June until Thursday 11 June

Members of the RMT Union that work for track and infrastructure operator Network Rail have announced that they are planning to take industrial action on:

  • 24 hour strike action from 17:00 on Thursday 4 June until 16:59 Friday 5 June
  • An overtime ban from 00:01 Saturday 6 June until 23:59 Friday 12 June
  • 48 hour strike action from 17:00 on Tuesday 9 June until 16:59 Thursday 11 June.

Should the industrial action go ahead, there is likely to be severe disruption to rail services during this period. Train services that do operate are likely to be extremely busy. Further talks are currently taking place between Network Rail and the RMT, which may lead to a resolution of the dispute.

You should check with National Rail Enquiries or the relevant train operator about the services they plan to run, but customers are advised that travelling by rail on many routes on days of the strike is unlikely to be possible. During the overtime ban there is an increased risk of service disruption - you are advised to check before you travel.

Finalised timetables for the period of industrial action will be made available as soon as possible, but this is unlikely to be before Wednesday 3 June, however general information of services planned will become available from Friday 29 May.

We appreciate that many customers will have their travel plans disrupted by the planned industrial action, so train companies have agreed to put in place special ticketing arrangements to make it easier for you to complete your journey, should the industrial action go ahead. Please see details below:

If the industrial action goes ahead and you already have a valid Anytime, Off-Peak or Super Off-Peak ticket valid for travel on either Thursday 4 June or Friday 5 June you will be able to use your ticket for travel on Wednesday 3 June or Saturday 6 June, subject to any travel restrictions that would normally apply to your ticket on those days.

If you have an Advance ticket for travel on Thursday 4 June or Friday 5 June, you will also be able to travel on either Wednesday 3 June or Saturday 6 June. However, if you travel on either of these two, alternative days, you must use the same time train service that you would have originally used, or the services immediately before or after this service.

If the industrial action goes ahead and you already have a valid Anytime, Off-Peak or Super Off-Peak ticket valid for travel from Tuesday 9 June to Thursday 11 June you will be able to use your ticket for travel on Monday 8 June or Friday 12 June, subject to any travel restrictions that would normally apply to your ticket on those days.

If you have an Advance ticket for travel from Tuesday 9th June to Thursday 11 June, you will also be able to travel on either Monday 8th June or Friday 12 June. However, if you travel on either of these two, alternative days, you must use the same time train service that you would have originally used, or the services immediately before or after this service.

Some train companies will be putting in place additional local ticketing arrangements, so please check with the train company you'll be using before travelling.

If you already have a ticket valid for travel on any of the days potentially affected by the planned industrial action and no longer wish to travel, the retailer that sold you your ticket will provide you with a full refund. Alternatively you can exchange it for another ticket (once you've paid any difference in price). If you want to obtain a refund or exchange your ticket please ask the retailer from whom you purchased your ticket.

If you have a Season Ticket you will be entitled to compensation. As these arrangements vary by train company, please check with your train company on the compensation you will be entitled to.

Please check this page regularly as information will be published here as soon as it becomes available.
