East Midlands Trains announces services to Carlton, Netherfield and Burton Joyce during strike action

Trains will be disrupted on Saturday, July 20, Saturday, July 27 and Saturday, August 3.

Some train services in Gedling borough will be disrupted during three Saturdays of strike action by the RMT union.

RMT members working as Senior Conductors on East Midlands Trains will strike at the end of July and the beginning of August.

The union has said the dispute is over EMT management’s ‘failure to bring a meaningful resolution to members’ concerns’ over pay discrimination and contract issues. East Midlands Trains denies this.

Today, East Midlands Trains confirmed what services it will be running for customers in Gedling borough on Saturday, July 20, Saturday, July 27 and Saturday, August 3.

There will be revised timetables and replacement coach services on some routes and customers are advised to check before travel.

Adam Piddington, customer experience director for East Midlands Trains said: “We’re disappointed that the RMT is intent on going ahead with this strike action. 


“We’re pleased we’ll be able to still run a good service for our customers on the three dates involved.

Our timetables are now available at for customers to check ahead and plan their journeys.”
