Members of GMB trade union working on Nottingham's tram network have today announced the date of a new day of strike action against unfair pay practises. This follows a day of strike action which took place on Saturday 6th November.

Following a ballot of GMB members employed by NTL (Nottingham Trams Limited), an overwhelming result for strike action on pay has been delivered by Nottingham’s tram workers.

A second 24 hour strike will take place on Tuesday 23rd November, across all lines and depots. 

A GMB spokesperson said:

"It's deeply disappointing that it's come to this, as this strike was completely avoidable. If company top brass had reached out with a fair pay offer for these key workers from the beginning, no strike action would have been necessary and this disruption could have been avoided.

Mid-week disruption on the network is completely avoidable and it’s time for NTL to act.

Nottingham’s tram workers are the life blood of the city, keeping businesses, families and working people moving. It’s time they got the reward and recognition they deserve from company top brass. Public support from Nottingham residents has been overwhelming and we would like to put on record out thanks to them on behalf of our members”.
