Welcome to ASLEF

ASLEF is Britain's trade union for train drivers. Its 20,000 members are employed in the train operating companies, the freight companies, London Underground and some Light Rapid Transport.

The first recorded meeting of the 'Associated Society of Locomotive Steam Enginemen and Firemen' was held on 7 February 1880 and its first monthly magazine was published eight years later. The union has seen its members working 12 or 16 hour days and six day weeks; it has fought major industrial disputes; it has seen nationalisation and privatisation; it has witnessed massive growth in the railways and the slashing cuts of Beeching.
