RMT Press Office:
ScotRail staff standing firm again today as gate line vote to join fight for equality and justice.
RAIL UNION RMT said that Scotrail conductors and ticket examiners are standing firm again today in a long running battle for pay justice and equality as gate line staff vote for action this week and cleaners prepare to join the fight on the 13th July.
RMT General Secretary, Mick Lynch, said:
“More than three months into these disputes our members are showing incredible resilience despite Abellio refusing to meet us with the apparent support of Transport Scotland and the SNP leadership. It is a scandal on Scotland's railways that is frankly shameful.
“The loyal, hard-working Scotrail staff who have stood firm in this fight for basic pay justice and equality deserve better than to be snubbed by both their employer and Scotland's political elite. They should have the common decency to start talking to us with a clear view to mapping out a fair solution to these long-running disputes. ”
