RMT to stage overtime ban on ScotRail | Railnews | Today’s news for Tomorrow’s railway
THE RMT is staging an indefinite ban on overtime and rest day working on ScotRail from midnight tonight in a dispute over equal pay for rest day working.
More than 2,000 ScotRail staff who are members of the RMT are set to join the action from 00.01 on 10 October.
The problem is not the first for ScotRail in the past few days, which has been forced to withdraw three new Hitachi Class 385 sets from service after reports of a brake fault.
RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: âThis dispute is about equality and justice across grades.
âIt cannot be right that the company seem to value one group of workers over another. Their approach to the rest day working payments, where they have only offered driver grades enhanced arrangements is nothing short of discriminatory.
