After a 20 month delay, due to Covid and a change of franchisee, guards on East Midlands Railway will resume their fight against unfair starter contracts and T&C busting rostering with 3 strikes on consecutive Sundays starting on May 16th, the first day of the new timetable.

Reps have paid close attention to the strike days that members wanted with the majority being in favour of consecutive Sunday strikes rather than Saturdays, weekdays or more than single days of action per week. Planning has also been done to further pressurise management if they don’t see sense.

Mindful of their role as keyworkers the guards feel that with lockdown easing and the vaccination program providing more protection against infection it is now high time for the company to materially, rather than just verbally, acknowledge the important role these staff have played in keeping the trains running.
