Commuters in Eastbourne could be given some respite on the trains.
The High Court has today (2 June) ruled in favour of Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) who’d sought an injunction against ASLEF’s ballot of drivers for industrial action.
A spokesman for GTR said, “We are pleased that the Court has agreed with us and granted an injunction against the ASLEF ballot. This means that any industrial action the union was planning cannot now take place. This will come as a great relief to our passengers.
“Following this ruling, we now urge both RMT and ASLEF to return to the negotiating table. We have been seeking proper negotiations on the various disputes for six months, and both ASLEF and RMT have refused to engage in any sort of meaningful dialogue. Rather than continue these disputes, let’s instead sit down and talk about this properly. That is what every passenger would want."
