Union wins bat­tle with rail com­pany

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

TRANS­PORT union TSSA claims to have won a bat­tle with Dutch rail com­pany Abel­lio over the right of its call cen­tre work­ers in Scot­land to be­long to a union.

TSSA or­gan­is­ers will now be granted ac­cess to the Fort Wil­liam-based na­tional call cen­tre this week where at least 57 em­ploy­ees have, un­til now, been de­nied union rights since Abel­lio took over the ScotRail fran­chise in April 2015.

It comes af­ter TSSA gen­eral sec­re­tary Manuel Cortes spoke to the me­dia at the week­end about a lack of re­sponse to re­quests from TSSA to be given ac­cess to the Fort Wil­liam em­ploy­ees.

Abel­lio has now agreed to open its Fort Wil­liam doors to TSSA to­day (Fe­bru­ary 16).
