No trains on 31 May or 3 June because of strike action

East Midlands Railway’s (EMR) services will be significantly reduced next week due to industrial action by members of the RMT and ASLEF unions.

There will be no services on Wednesday, 31 May and Saturday, June 3 as members from union ASLEF will take industrial action.

This strike action specifically affects train drivers and therefore EMR will be unable to operate any trains during the action. The strikes will also affect other train operating companies and their services across the country.

Customers should expect possible short-notice cancellations or alterations on Thursday, June 1. This is due to action short of a strike taking place by members of the ASLEF Union.

On Friday, 2 June, EMR will be operating a significantly reduced service with trains due to industrial action by the RMT union – with trains only running between 0730 – 1830 and the last departures starting between 1500 and 1630.

On this day Intercity trains will also start from Derby, rather than Sheffield due to the North Derby Block engineering works taking place. However, CrossCountry will be running a shuttle service between Sheffield and Derby and customers can travel between Sheffield and Nottingham to change for London services too.

Customers are being advised to travel by rail only if absolutely necessary and should be aware that strike action will affect other routes across the country – with very limited services running across the whole rail network.

Customers should also ensure they check their full journey before traveling and are strongly advised to check the EMR website, information in stations and social media for the latest advice and information.
