Tram network strikes this Saturday (6 November)


November 5th, 2021

There will likely be no tram service across Nottingham on Saturday 6 November due to strike action.

The strike is planned to be in effect throughout Saturday – but services will also be affected on Friday night as trams are returned to the depot before midnight.

The measures will be in place from 9.30pm on Friday as it will take some time for services to be wound down ahead of the start of industrial action at midnight. Customers are urged to plan ahead and aim to complete their tram journey by 10pm.

In the absence of a tram service, Trent Barton and NCT Buses, as well as East Midlands Rail, will be accepting tram tickets on their services throughout the duration of the strike.

Trent Barton’s Rainbow One, Threes and Indigo buses will all be accepting tram tickets. However, there is likely to be significant inconvenience and disruption to network customers.

Services will resume as normal from 6am on Sunday morning.

The planned strike comes following a dispute over pay after trade union GMB rejected a recent pay rise offer from Nottingham Express Transit (NET).

NET offered a backdated pay increase of 3% for 2020 and a further 3% for 2021, or the level of inflation if it is higher.
