Aslef members take strike action
Strike negotiations may resolve train dispute.
Further strike negotiations may be required as members of Aslef at Arriva Trains Wales are holding a 24-hour walkout today (February 28th), leading to the cancellation of up to 900 services.
The firm urged passengers to make alternative travel plans ahead of the industrial action, which is also expected to have an impact on services tomorrow morning.
Peter Leppard, operations director for Arriva Trains Wales, said: "We are still extremely disappointed that our generous offer has been rejected and that the planned industrial action by Aslef has gone ahead."
He added the fact a small number of services have been able to go ahead demonstrates that not all train drivers are supportive of the industrial action.
Arriva managed to run some services in south and west Wales on Sunday, with shuttle services operating between Barry and Pontypridd, via Cardiff Central, Bridgend and Cardiff, via the Vale of Glamorgan line and Carmarthen and Swansea, reports the Press Association.
ASLEF is the UK's union for train drivers and has more than 18,500 members who are employed in train operating companies.
