More trains could be cancelled in Stockholm on Monday morning after the ST transport union called a ’safety stop’ from 9am, with drivers asked not to operate driver-only trains.

The union called for driver-only trains to be stopped on safety grounds, claiming that the number of safety incidents had increased since the train operator MTR brought in driver-only trains. ST is demanding that a guard be present on all trains for them to be allowed to run.

According to Niklas Ekström, press spokesperson for MTR, about half of the trains it operates will be stopped if the Swedish Work Environment Agency (Arbetsmiljöverket) rules that the safety stop is justified.
