Strike ballot called over equality of pay for working rest days
A transport union plans to ballot workers on strike action in a row over working on rest days.
The Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association (TSSA) said it has notified Scotrail of its intention.
The union wants its members – who include ticket office, platform and control room staff – to have parity with Scotrail drivers, which it claims are paid £300 for working on a rest day.
The TSSA said all its members are paid “significantly” less than this for working rest days.
A Scotrail spokesman said: “We are continuing to work with the trade unions and our people to try to reach a solution that benefits everyone.”
