The services disrupted are as follows:

Passengers may use Virgin Trains services between Crewe / Stoke-on-Trent and Liverpool / Manchester and also CrossCountry services between Peterborough and Ely.
Passengers who decide not to travel because of this disruption can apply for a refund for their ticket from the place of purchase.
Alternatively, passengers can travel on East Midlands Trains services only (using the route shown on their ticket) tomorrow.
The High Court last week decided not to grant an injunction against the RMT union, which started industrial action last month.
East Midlands Trains is pursuing an appeal at the Court of Appeal, against what it believes is unlawful strike action being organised by the RMT union.
