Temporary changes to EMR Regional services

As a result of strike action being taken by Senior Conductors who are members of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) there will be a small number of cancellations to EMR Regional services.

The RMT has announced further days of strikes. These changes will only affect services on the following dates:

  • Sunday 20th and 27th June
  • Sunday 4th, 11th, 18th and 24th July
  • Sunday 1st, 8th and 15th August

We are extremely disappointed the RMT has taken the decision to extend their strikes throughout the summer.

At a time when the railway continues to benefit from taxpayer support and no one has been furloughed or lost their job this action damages our ability to support the East Midlands recovery from the Covid pandemic and attract people back to the railway and support public transport as a whole.

The strikes will only affect a handful of EMR Regional services have no impact on EMR Intercity or EMR Connect services. Services to and from London are not affected.
