Industrial action due to affect National Rail services on Monday 25 & Tuesday 26 May 2015
The RMT have announced that Network Rail workers are to stage a 24-hour national rail strike from 5pm on bank holiday Monday in a dispute over pay.
As with any potential disruption to our training schedule, we are taking additional measures to ensure all our courses run on the day affected (Tuesday 26th May). Whilst there is a possibility that the strike may be averted we will assume it is going to happen.
Our commitment – courses never cancelled
Again we are committed to running all our planned courses. In the last 10 years we’ve only had 27 out of 12,364 courses disrupted! As you can see it is a rare event and we are confident that our training delivery will not be disrupted with this latest rail strike.
As we have done in the past, should the worst happen, we will reschedule the course with delegates agreement and offer a free course.
- Come along as planned safe in the knowledge we will be prepared
- If you face travel disruption, you can reschedule your course, please see options here.
It is our understanding that should the strike go ahead provision will be made by Network Rail for rail ticket refunds, please see links below.
