There will be no East Midlands Railway (EMR) services running across Nottinghamshire for two days next week as strike action continues.

EMR will not be operating any services on Wednesday, February 1, and Friday, February 3 due to industrial action taken by members of the ASLEF union and train drivers with the RMT union. 

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

The train firm says that customers who have purchased an Advance, Off-Peak, or Anytime ticket for the days affected may travel on the day before the date on the ticket, or up to and including, Tuesday, February 7.

If customers choose not to travel on the days around the strike action, they can receive a full refund from the point they purchased the tickets. No administration fee will be charged.

EMR services on the days around the strike action are not affected and will run as normal. 

Customers are advised to check the EMR website, information in stations and social media for the latest advice and information.

Will Rogers, Managing Director at East Midlands Railway, said: “As a result of strike action being taken by members of the ASLEF union and the RMT union we are not able to run any services on Wednesday, 1 February, and Friday, 3 February.

“Customers with an Advance, Off-peak or Anytime ticket who are affected by the strike can use their ticket either on the day before the date on the ticket, or up to and including, Tuesday, 7 February. Customers can also travel on an alternate date or get a refund. More details are on our website.”
