East Midlands train drivers set to strike over pensions

Issue No. 2301

Drivers at East Midlands Trains are set to strike over pensions this week. The Aslef union members voted in favour of action by 76 percent.

The first planned strike days are on Tuesday and Thursday this week, followed by further strikes on 8, 10, 15 and 17 May. The union says “short-term cost-cutting” by East Midlands Trains has put the company’s pension scheme in deficit.
