Strike Action Withdrawn

25 February 2008

ASLEF has today reached agreement with London Midland regarding a way forward in the pensions dispute involving members previously employed by Silverlink County and based at Bletchley Depot.


Following talks earlier today between representatives of the company and ASLEF, London Midland has agreed to seek to address the issue as part of the forthcoming harmonisation talks which are scheduled to commence on 7 March 2008. In the event that these discussions are successful, London Midland commits to fully closing the identified pension gap for those Drivers affected by no later than March 2009. This will include Drivers who leave service between May 2007 and March 2009.


As a result, ASLEF has agreed to withdraw the industrial action planned for Thursday 28 and Friday 29 February 2008. Members will be kept advised of any further developments via the usual channels.
