East Midlands Trains is pleased to confirm that the industrial action, scheduled to start this Sunday morning, has now been suspended following positive talks this morning. A ban on overtime has also been suspended.
Train maintenance staff belonging to the Unite Union had been due to take industrial action for a week, starting from 6am on Sunday 28th September.
East Midlands Trains and representatives of the Unite Union held productive talks this morning (Friday 26th September) in an effort to avert the strike action. Unite has now agreed to suspend the pending industrial action as well as the overtime ban while their members consider the latest offer.
Clare Burles, Human Resources Director at East Midlands Trains, said: “The talks we held with Unite this morning were very productive and we are pleased they have suspended this industrial action.
“This is great news for our passengers and we will continue to engage constructively with Unite with a view to prevent this happening again.”
All services from Sunday 28th September will now run to a full and normal timetable.
East Midlands Trains is in the process of updating its website and informing customers of the latest developments.
