East Midlands Railway (EMR) has warned that it won’t operate any services on Saturday (November 26) due to industrial action being taken by ASLEF union members.

The union, which represents train drivers, are set to strike in a dispute over pay.

EMR, which operates services through Alfreton, has warned that services on Sunday (November 27) could feel the knock-on effects of Saturday’s strike.

Will Rogers, managing director at EMR, said: “As a result of strike action being taken by members of the ASLEF union we are not able to run any services on Saturday.

“Customers with advance, off-peak or anytime tickets affected by the strike can use their ticket either on the day before the date on the ticket or up to and including Tuesday, November 29.

“Customers can also change their tickets to travel on an alternate date or get a refund. More details are on our website.”
