To All Abellio Scotrail Gateline CSA RMT Members

Dear Colleague

REST DAY WORKING DYNAMIC PAYMENTS – ABELLIO SCOTRAIL

Further to my previous correspondence with regards to the above dispute, once again I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you and your colleagues for standing firm and solidly supporting the industrial action taken to date.

As you will be aware, in our pay dispute all Scotrail members have been instructed to take strike action between Monday 1st November 2021 and Friday 12th November 2021. Legally we cannot instruct members to take industrial action on two separate disputes at the same time. Therefore, we are suspending all industrial action on the rest day working disputes during the pay strike.

For the avoidance of doubt, all our Abellio Scotrail Gateline CSA members are instructed to take industrial action short of a strike as outlined below:

No Overtime, Higher Grade Duty or Rest Day Working from 00.01 hours on Saturday 13th November 2021 until further notice.
A Rest Day Working ban in the form of only working booked Sundays from 00.01 hours on Saturday 13th November 2021 until further notice.

Important note: the instruction to members not to work any Rest Days, Overtime or undertake any Higher Grade Duties is suspended during the strike action called over pay & conditions from 00.01 hours on Monday 1st November until 23.59 hours on Friday 12th November 2021, as previously advised to all Scotrail members last week.

I urge you all to show your support and stand shoulder to shoulder during the days of industrial action short of a strike. 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
