We are disappointed that, following our most recent talks, the trade unions immediately rejected our improved offer and issued strike dates that will cause disruption for our passengers.
Hull Trains has historically had a good relationship with the trade unions, and we remain committed to meaningful talks with both the RMT and ASLEF, with the aim of resolving disputes for the benefit of customers, employees, and our business.
Hull Trains made significant losses during the pandemic, having had to hibernate the business on three separate occasions, and revenues have still not recovered. Any pay increase that we agree needs to be affordable to ensure the sustainability of our business and long-term job security.
We intend to operate a reduced number of services on the proposed dates and will continue to provide up to date information on our website and social media channels.
