ScotRail staff rock solid again today in fight for equality and justice as company turn the screw on pay.
RAIL UNION RMT said that Scotrail members who have been engaged for over six months fight for pay justice and equality are standing rock solid again today in a week when the company chose to up their attacks on staff by refusing to budge on their imposed pay freeze.
RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said:
"Our members who have stood firm for over six months in this fight for pay justice and equality in the face of continued provocation from the employer are a credit to the entire trade union movement. They have never wavered and remain absolutely rock solid and determined again today.
"This week a parallel issue over the imposed pay freeze stepped up a notch with sister unions joining the fight for justice.
"Our campaign of action continues and it is now down to Scotrail, Transport Scotland and the senior politicians who call the shots to take these essential workers seriously, get out of the bunker and get round the table with the union to negotiate a fair and just settlement. "
