SCOTRAIL workers at Glasgow Central station are to go on strike over alleged "disciplinary abuses" from bosses. 

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) will walk out from Sunday, November 29 and then every Sunday between then and January 3, 2021. Some Sunday services may be cancelled as a result of the strike.

They are also told by the union not to work any rest days, higher grade duty or overtime from Monday, November 30 to Saturday, January 2021.

The union alleged that guards and conductors were being subject to "punitive" disciplinary measures from bosses. 

RMT boss Mick Cash thanked members for returning an "overwhelming" yes vote for strike action in a ballot.

He added: "I urge our affected members to stand united and support the forthcoming days of industrial action to send a clear message to management that we will not tolerate these continued attacks on the conductor grade and to bring an immediate stop to the punitive disciplinary action against our members.‎"

David Simpson, the operations director of ScotRail, said it was "very disappointing" ScotRail had called for strike action "during a national crisis".

He added: "ScotRail values each and every member of staff and we have regular engagement with the RMT, and the other trade unions, to ensure they have the best possible environment to do their job.

“It is particularly disappointing that the action is being taken when the disciplinary process hasn’t been completed yet, which goes against the spirit of our efforts to engage positively with the RMT.”
