London Midland passengers face disruption this weekend

27 February 2014

A strike by key supervisors will cause disruption to London Midland train services over the next two days, warned the TSSA rail union today.

The duty train crew managers will walk out for 48-hours from 10.00pm tonight until 10.00pm on Saturday night in a row over a shorter working week.
Steve Coe, the union's assistant general secretary, said: "We would like to apologise in advance to passengers who may well find their services delayed and even cancelled but we have been forced to take this action to get management to listen to us seriously.
He warned a second 48-strike would take place next Thursday night from 10.00pm if the dispute had not been settled by then.
London Midland carries over 30 million passengers a year between London Euston and Liverpool and across the West and East Midlands. The duty managers are based at Birmingham, Bletchley, Crewe and Worcester.
