Threat of strike on cup fi­nal week­end

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

A union has threat­ened to con­sult mem­bers over strik­ing on the week­end of the Scot­tish Cup fi­nal in a row over ScotRail’s cam­era-mon­i­tor­ing staff.

The TSSA claims CCTV staff are “over­stretched” fol­low­ing ac­cep­tance of 17 ap­pli­ca­tions for vol­un­tary re­dun­dancy from 22 spe­cial­ist staff.

It has also crit­i­cised night­shift cover plans.

The union is hold­ing talks with ScotRail to­day and wants staff num­bers to re­turn to pre­vi­ous lev­els. If ScotRail bosses do not agree, TSSA gen­eral sec­re­tary Manuel Cortes plans to raise the is­sue with trans­port min­is­ter Humza Yousaf to­mor­row.

Un­less a so­lu­tion is found, the union will con­sult mem­bers on strik­ing over the week­end of May 19 and 20, when Celtic play Mother­well.
