Main rail union RMT in talks over Scotrail pay dispute tomorrow as campaign for justice continues.
Scotland's main rail union RMT has confirmed that it will be attending pay talks with Scotrail tomorrow as the campaign continues and with the union warning again that it will have no hesitation in taking action during COP26 to secure pay justice for Scottish rail workers if that's what it takes.
RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said:
'Scotland's main rail union will be attending pay talks tomorrow and we expect serious movement over the attempt to impose a de facto pay cut on rail workers who have kept Scotland moving during the pandemic.
'It's RMT members who have been out the gate for over six months fighting for pay justice and equality and we will take no lectures from anyone and will have no hesitation in jacking up a fresh phase of action in this latest dispute.
'It's time for the politicians in Scotland who hold the purse strings and have control of the transport system to instruct their contractors to deliver a fair pay deal for their workforce.'
