Strike bal­lot called over equal­ity of pay for work­ing rest days

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

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.”
