Strikes by drivers at East Midlands Trains have been planned for three days during the London 2012 Olympics in a row over pensions. Members of the train drivers' union Aslef have scheduled industrial action for 6, 7, and 8 August. It said talks with East Midlands Trains had failed to produce a breakthrough over pension contribution cuts. The rail operator said Aslef was 'playing games' and the strikes were a 'kick in the teeth' for customers.
