RAIL users are being advised to check their journeys before travelling as some services face cancellation.

Following the 24-hour strike on Monday (October 10), further action is planned by more than 2,000 ScotRail employees who are members of the RMT Union.

Members of the union have been instructed not to work any overtime from Friday, October 14.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail head of customer operations, said: “We will do everything we can to minimise the impact on customers, however, there will be some disruption.

"We advise customers to check their journey before they travel, particularly in the morning before they start their day.

The action comes after the RMT rejected a pay offer from ScotRail which included a five per cent basic pay increase, a six-year job guarantee, a £500 one-off payment for the use of technology and improved maternity leave conditions.

The rail operator also put forward a £390 payment and enhanced commission for frontline teams.

Mr Campbell added: “We are really disappointed with this additional industrial action, which will again impact on our customers, following the strike action earlier in the week.

“The ban on overtime does nothing for the railway’s recovery during this challenging time, and in addition to the impact on those travelling, it will further cost our staff with lost income.

“We do rely on staff working overtime in various parts of the business as we actively recruit to fill vacancies, and unfortunately there will be some daily cancellations starting from Friday, 14 October, and throughout the period of the RMT’s ban.

“We are continuing to meet with RMT representatives to resolve this dispute.”
