Hi all. Just wondering if anyone knows what happens if you work for a TOC and then the franchise operating it changes. For example, when Central changed to London Midland for one. Just wondering what happens to you if you work for a franchise and then it changes? No idea myself so thought this might be a good place to ask? Many thanks all

Pretty much nothing. All employees are TUPE'd over. Same contracts, pay, working conditions. Senior Management may differ.

Been under a few changes and barely noticed a change in my day.

TUPEd over, new uniform, new branding, a few pointless differences to how the operational railway runs. That's about it.....

Different reciprocal travel agreements.

For non-safeguarded staff, that can actually be one of the biggest differences these days and can sway staff opinion a little, not that staff get any say......

What happens if you apply for a position and are kept on hold for positions to become available, but during the wait the franchise changes. Are you still on hold?
