Members of Aslef train driving union have scheduled industrial action for 6, 7, and 8 August, right in the middle of the Olympics, as East Midlands Trains’ plans to reduce both its own and staff contributions to its pension fund from July.
In this age of where your state pension age is increasing and the Govt are encouraging you to have additional pension what a fucking stupid thing for East Midland to do. Of course the strike is going to be in the Olympics – minimum effort, maximum chaos. They talk of National Pride but what about national pride of respecting our workers.
Solidarity to all the workers on East Midlands trains and remember:
