RMT Press Office:

RMT members united and determined in East Midlands Railways disputes again today in fights for justice and safety.

RAIL UNION‎ RMT said that it's senior conductor and train manager members remain united and determined in separate East Midlands Railways disputes this morning.

Senior conductors have been engaged in a four month fight for pay and contract justice while the EMR train managers are campaigning for safe operation and staffing on trains in a separate dispute with the same company.

General Secretary Mick Lynch said;

"Whilst our members are standing firm in these two separate disputes over contract and safety issues it is frankly appalling that East Midlands Railways are refusing all efforts by the union to get talks going.

"Instead of playing dangerous games with both passenger and staff safety with their cobbled-together army of ill-trained strike breakers the company should be getting round the table with us and thrashing out a solution. "
