As the Scottish Government confirms today that it has an operator of last resort in place to take over the failing Scotrail franchise RMT tells them to "stop wasting time and get on with it."

General secretary Mick Cash said;

"With the Scottish Government confirming today that it has a public sector operator of last resort in place to take over the failing Abellio Scotrail‎ franchise the message from Scotland's biggest rail union is stop messing about and get on with it.

"There should be no more final warnings, no more half-baked rescue plans and no more playing for time. Abellio should have the Scotrail franchise terminated with immediate effect on the grounds of persistent and gross mismanagement and the whole operation should be taken into public ownership."
