· Union accepts proposals outlined in yesterdays “constructive talks”
· Strike action for 23 and 25 June called off
· Normal timetable to run on these days
· Unite and RMT also accept pensions proposals
East Midlands Trains has welcomed confirmation that ASLEF representatives have accepted proposals outlined in “constructive talks” and suspended strike action planned for 25 June.
The train operator now plans to run a full and normal service on these days.
David Horne, Managing Director for East Midlands Trains, said: “This is a positive and welcome step by ASLEF and means we can run our full service for passengers on Monday 25 June.”
The RMT and Unite unions had also earlier confirmed their approval to the company’s updated pension proposals.
Mr Horne added: “It’s very good news that the three trade unions representing our employees have now approved our updated proposals. Our pension scheme is in good health and our agreement with the unions will mean their members will be able to benefit from higher take-home pay and additional pensions benefits”.
