As a result of industrial action being taken by train maintenance staff belonging to the Unite union over pay and conditions, there will be some changes to the East Midlands Trains’ timetable from Sunday 27 July to Thursday 31 July.
The majority of services will continue to run as normal to/from London, although a number of services may operate with fewer carriages than normal. The normal planned timetable will also run between Nottingham and Liverpool, Derby and Crewe and for holiday makers and day-trippers travelling between Nottingham, Grantham and Skegness.
Tim Sayer, Engineering Director for East Midlands Trains, said: “We’re very disappointed that Unite has chosen to take this course of action, clearly attempting to cause disruption to our customers during the start of the main summer holiday season. This action will ultimately hit the pockets of Unite’s members and will see no winners.
“We have put forward a very reasonable and fair offer to our engineering staff, representing a 2.75% pay increase, and are extremely surprised that this offer has been rejected.
“The industrial action is being taken by just 10% of our total workforce. We have prepared full contingency plans to provide cover during the Unite strike action and will be working hard to ensure that the impact on our customers is minimised.
“Our door remains open for further talks with Unite, however our full focus is now on continuing to deliver a reliable and high quality train service for our customers.”
