Calling all Team Modeshift Members!
The RMT Union have announced that strikes on Network Rail will now take place on November 3, 5 and 7. Despite this coinciding with the Modeshift Convention, the 2-day event will proceed as planned. Minor changes will be made to the agenda in order to give delegates as much time as possible to travel to Leicester for the Convention.
This is a minor blip, and certainly something that we, as experts within the travel and transport industry, should overcome with ease! We have faith that the Members of Team Modeshift will still be able to make their way to Leicester for our event. This morning we have spoken to a number of our speakers and delegates who have confirmed that they still intend to travel to Leicester to attend the Convention be what may. This gives us confidence that we can still deliver what is shaped up to be an exceptional Convention for you.
