Union to vote on in­dus­trial ac­tion

The Oban Times - - News -

TRANS­PORT union mem­bers are to be bal­loted on whether to carry out in­dus­trial ac­tion fol­low­ing re­ported ‘de­fects’ on trains link­ing Fort Wil­liam with other cities.

RMT union mem­bers work­ing on the Cale­do­nian Sleeper rail ser­vice which links Fort Wil­liam with Glas­gow and Lon­don are to vote on in­dus­trial ac­tion.

Union mem­bers say the ser­vice has been suf­fer­ing from bro­ken toi­lets and fire alarms, lead­ing to de­lays and can­cel­la­tions.

Op­er­a­tor Serco, which took over Cale­do­nian Sleeper ear­lier this year, said it was dis­ap­pointed the union was con­sid­er­ing in­dus­trial ac­tion, and it was work­ing to im­prove the sleeper ser­vice.
