I just wanted to share some advance notice of possible disruption on the Metro that I have just received from Nexus. I hope that those of you who travel by Metro can find an alternative way of getting to school on Friday 20th December so that your children don't miss out on the fun activities we have planned for that day, including a visit and presents from a person in a red suit with white trimmings!
If there are any further updates, or if the strike action is cancelled before this date I will keep you informed.
I regret to have to inform you that the RMT Union has today informed us of
strike action by train crew working on the Tyne and Wear Metro, scheduled
for Friday 20 December and Saturday 21 December. If this action goes
ahead it is highly likely that there will be no Metro services, across the entire
Metro system, on those days.
We are hugely disappointed that this trade union has chosen to target two of
the busiest days of the year for the area, and we deeply regret the disruption
that this will cause.
