RMT Press Office:
Scotrail strike picket lines this morning - this strike is about safety.
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"This morning I pay tribute to RMT members on Abellio/Scotrail who are fighting for the safety of our railways in the teeth of a campaign of bullying and dirty tricks by this Dutch owned outfit . The action is solid and determined right across Scotland again this morning.
"The public will be rightly demanding to know why the Scottish Government are sitting on their hands and allowing this mob to rip apart the safety culture on the railway. They should get involved, drag Abellio/Scotrail to the negotiating table and force them to start talking seriously with the union with no pre-conditions."
