A strike which would have affected East Midlands Trains’ services for a week has been called off.

Staff from the Unite union had been due to take industrial action for seven days from 6am on Sunday in a pay dispute.

However, the strike has now been suspended following talks with union representatives.

Clare Burles, human resources director at East Midlands Trains, said: “The talks we held with Unite this morning were very productive and we are pleased they have suspended this industrial action.

“This is great news for our passengers and we will continue to engage constructively with Unite with a view to prevent this happening again.”

All services from Sunday will now run to a full and normal timetable.

East Midlands Trains runs services throughout Derbyshire.
