ASLEF calls off East Midland strikes

13 November 2007

ASLEF today announced that it is calling off strikes planned for each Thursday from now until the end of the month in its dispute over pensions with the old Midland Mainline franchise.


East Midland Trains, the new franchise company which inherited the problems from Midland Mainline, has proposed talks to end the dispute, and as a gesture of goodwill towards the new company, the union has called off its planned industrial action.


‘I hope this is an indication that we will enjoy more positive and fruitful industrial relations with the new company,’ said ASLEF general secretary Keith Norman. He added, ‘I would also like to congratulate every member of our union in the old MML for the 100% support they gave over the period. Without their solidarity and determination, we would never have reached the point where serious discussions were back on the agenda.’
