RMT announces strike ballot on Scotrail over pay dispute

29 September 2021

RMT Press Office:

SCOTLAND'S MAIN RAIL UNION RMT said today that it has served notice of an industrial action ballot on Scotrail in the on-going pay dispute.

The union said that the schedule for the ballot would enable action to take place during COP26 if, as expected, members vote yes. Over two thousand RMT members across all grades are involved.

RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said:

“Today's ballot announcement has been forced on us by the deliberate time wasting by Scotrail and Transport Scotland.

“This issue should have been sorted‎ by now and we should have had a fair and just offer that recognises the hard and important work of our members.

“The union will be campaigning for a massive yes vote and we remain available for talks.”
