Commenting in advance of tomorrow’s RMT strike action, Grahame Smith, Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) General Secretary said:
“STUC strongly supports RMT fight to keep Scotland’s trains running safely and opposes Abellio ScotRail's efforts to extend driver only operations on Scotland’s railway. Since assuming control of the franchise last year Abellio has failed to deliver the enlightened European model of industrial relations reflected in their franchise bid. It is essential that the Scottish Government now forces Abellio to engage constructively with the RMT in an effort to negotiate an acceptable solution to this dispute”.
