Further industrial action has been announced by the RMT. It is highly unlikely that there will be any Barton Line or Grimsby - Lincoln - Nottingham service on:
Wednesday 27th July 2022
Thursday 18th August 2022
Saturday 20th August 2022


As the night signaller shifts will be affected by the action, there is also likely to be a knock on effect, particularly to morning services on:
Thursday 28th July 2022
Friday 19th August 2022
Sunday 21st August 2022

Service information for the strike days will be published by EMR at:

https://www.eastmidlandsrailway.co.uk/rail-strike


Note that EMR and Freightliner drivers are not involved in the ASLEF action on Saturday 30th July 2022. Due to an oversight with the ballot, TPE drivers are also not involved at this stage. Therefore, it is hoped that Barton Line, Grimsby - Lincoln - Leicester and Cleethorpes - Manchester services will run on this date.

RMT Strike action scheduled for Thursday 3rd November 2022 has now been rescheduled for Wednesday 9th November 2022.
Strike action planned for Saturday 5th and Monday 7th November 2022 will still take place as planned.
It is highly unlikely that there will be any Barton Line or Grimsby - Lincoln - Nottingham service on any of the three days and only a limited service from Cleethorpes to Sheffield.
Early morning services will be disrupted on Tuesday 8th and Thursday 10th November 2022.
Confirmed service information will be posted on https://www.eastmidlandsrailway.co.uk/rail-strike when it is known. We will of course keep the FBL Facebook page updated also.
