RMT repeats offer to suspend Southern strike action around principles of ScotRail proposals and calls for urgent talks today
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"I have written to Charles Horton today (attached) calling for talks to get back underway immediately in the Southern guards dispute.
"The union believes that there is a deal to be done based around the ScotRail principles and that we need to pick up on the progress that was being made when the talks broke down on Friday afternoon.
"It is in no one's interests to prolong this dispute when the framework that can take us forward has been so clearly laid out."
