RMT CALLS ADDITIONAL STRIKE ACTION
AND ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE

Dear Colleague

REST DAY WORKING DYNAMIC PAYMENTS – ABELLIO SCOTRAIL

Further to my letter dated the 13th April 2021 with regards to the above dispute, I would like to congratulate you and your colleagues for standing firm during the days of industrial action. Our Scotrail Conductor members have solidly supported the strike action taken to date in their fight for equality and workplace justice over enhanced payments for rest day working.

Your union’s National Executive Committee has again considered the matter and has taken the decision to call on all our Abellio Scotrail Conductor members to take further industrial action. Therefore, you and your colleagues are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:-

00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 20th June 2021
00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 27th June 2021
00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 4th July 2021
00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 11th July 2021
00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 18th July 2021
00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 25th July 2021

Please note that you have already been advised of the strike action called for Sunday 6th June 2021 and Sunday 13th June 2021 which of course remains in place.

We will give notice of further Sunday’s if no agreement is reached with the company.

Additionally, the instruction to our Abellio Scotrail Conductor members not to work any Rest Days or undertake any Higher Grade Duties remains in place until further notice.

I ask you all to show your support and stand shoulder to shoulder during the days of industrial action. We must ensure we do not allow Scotrail to divide the workforce and demand that the company do what is fair and honour an enhanced rate for rest day working for all grades.

I trust this keeps you fully advised on the matter and I will, of course, update you on any further developments.

UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT THE INDUSTRIAL ACTION

Yours sincerely

Michael Lynch
General Secretary
