Network Rail maintenance strike
Over 12,000 Network Rail maintenance workers in the RMT union are set to strike from 12 noon on Saturday to 5.59pm on Sunday.
The union is demanding a single set of terms and conditions for maintenance staff, many of whom transferred into Network Rail from the private sector.
The TSSA rail workers’ union is also balloting its members at Network Rail for action over redundancies.
East Midlands Trains
Some 130 senior conductors in the RMT rail workers’ union at East Midlands Trains struck last Saturday over a breakdown in industrial relations with the company.
Workers at Boston, Lincoln, Norwich and Nottingham are also set to strike on the next two Saturdays in the dispute.
