Prospect of industrial action
A union has threatened to consult members over striking on the weekend of the Scottish Cup final in a row over ScotRail CCTV-monitoring staff.
The TSSA claims CCTV staff are “overstretched” following acceptance of 17 applications for voluntary redundancy from 22 specialist staff.
It 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 in a meeting tomorrow.
Unless a solution is found, the union will then consult members on striking over the weekend of May 19 and 20.
