Commuters in Gedling borough will face further disruption next month when rail workers take part in two days of strike action.

East Midlands Railway workers are amongst those taking part in the newly-announced strikes on August 18 and 20 – which means services across Gedling borough will be impacted.

This is in addition to a 24-hour strike by the RMT on 27 July.

The rail operator runs trains from Burton Joyce, Carlton and Netherfield Stations.

The rail strikes have been announced by the RMT union as the row continues over jobs, pay and working conditions.

General secretary Mick Lynch said: “The rail industry and the government need to understand that this dispute will not simply vanish.

“They need to get serious about providing an offer on pay which helps deal with the cost-of-living crisis, job security for our members and provides good conditions at work.

“We remain open for talks, but we will continue our campaign until we reach a negotiated settlement.”

A notice has been posted on the East Midlands Railway website acknowledging the strike action and warning of disruption.

It read: “The RMT union has confirmed its members will be taking strike action on Wednesday 27 July.

“This will reduce the number of services East Midlands Railway is able to operate.

“Service information and timetables will be available very shortly.

“Please continue to check the EMR website, information in stations and social media for the latest advice and information.”

  1. The government have a lot to answer for, Boris is a liar, Brexit and the funding of the kraine has cost a dear, causing the cost of living crisis.
    To add to this the leveling up lie…well its simply a lie.
    Hopefully the next PM will not be a liar and will treat working people better, and tax the mega rich more.
