RAIL UNION RMT said that action by conductors and ticket examiners in a long running battle for pay justice and equality remains rock solid again today as the company’s cleaners prepare to join the fight on the 13th July.
ScotRail train presentation/cleaning staff are set to take action over equality in rest day working payment as follows.
Abellio ScotRail Train Presentation (Cleaner) Grade members to take industrial action short of a strike as outlined below:
• No Overtime, Higher Grade Duty or Rest Day Working from 18.00 Hours on Tuesday 13th July 2021 until further notice.
RMT General Secretary, Mick Lynch, said:
“It defies belief that three months into these disputes Abellio are refusing to budge, refusing to meet us and have the apparent support of Transport Scotland and the SNP leadership. It is a scandal on Scotland's railways of epic proportions.
“All parties with an interest in Scotland’s transport and the fair treatment of the workforce should drag themselves out of the bunker and start talking now.”
