Covid 19 Guidance

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 the Executive Committee has been reacting to the rapid developments within our industry, often on a daily basis to provide guidance and protection to ASLEF members whilst carrying out their duties.


We have also produced instructions on the operation and functions of ASLEF to ensure that we continue to provide representation during these difficult times.


These instructions and guidance have been issued as bulletins and will continue to be so.


Along with the bulletins, we have produced a guidance document listing, in full, any updated agreements or best practice regarding staying safe during the Coronavirus pandemic.
