CANCELLED: additional dates for industrial action on LNER
Updated Mon 22 January 15:30
The planned additional strike dates and overtime ban on LNER are cancelled. ASLEF members at LNER will still take strike action on Friday 2nd February.
Train drivers who are members of ASLEF Union will walk out on LNER for five days from Monday 5 until Friday 9 February.
The drivers will also refuse to work any non-contractual overtime from Wednesday 7 until Saturday 10 February.
The action is in furtherance of the union's long-running pay dispute with the operator.
Mick Whelan, general secretary of ASLEF, commented: "We have given LNER management - and their government counterparts who hold the purse strings - every opportunity to come to the table and they have so far made no realistic offer to our members.
"We have not heard from the Transport Secretary since December 2022, or from the train operating companies since April 2023. It's time for them to come to the table and work with us to resolve this dispute so we can all move forward and get our railway back on track."
