Very proud that there have been 5,210 new apprenticeships in Harlow since 2010. I was the first MP to hire an apprentice in their parliamentary office and I will have my 5th apprentice starting on Monday. I am passionate about apprenticeships providing a ladder of opportunity to give people the skills and training they need to get jobs and prosperity for their futures. ... See MoreSee Less

UPDATE: Abellio have clarified that these strikes will not effect Harlow residents directly. Though other Abellio lines are affected, the line through Harlow doesn’t operate with conductors and hasn’t done so for many years. They are driver only operated, so the industrial action has no implications for services to Harlow.

Unfortunately, the RMT union has decided to take strike action which may affect Harlow residents using the Abellio Greater Anglia line into London. I have received the following letter from the Secretary of State for Transport with more details.

I have also been contacted by Abellio who have reassured me of the following:

1) In the event of industrial action by RMT members on those dates, Abellio intend to operate a full, normal service on both days. Their contingency plans are based on all scheduled services operating with no service alterations, as they have trained up additional people to cover the conductors’ roles.

2) They remain keen to talk with the RMT to try and resolve the issues.

3) Abellio value their conductors and have guaranteed their jobs for the entire franchise term to October 2025. Their pay and terms and conditions would not be eroded and they would still be safety-trained. Abellio are just proposing that the drivers open and close doors, so conductors can spend more time assisting and helping passengers.
