RMT members vote to accept ScotRail pay offer

The RMT has today confirmed that its general grades members have voted to accept the improved pay offer made by ScotRail.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail head of customer operations, said: “We are delighted that RMT members have voted to accept this pay offer. We worked hard to put forward an offer which recognises the hard work of staff, as well as the financial challenges faced by the railway as we recover from the pandemic.

“ScotRail, our staff, and our customers want to have a reliable, safe, and sustainable railway that supports the economy and connects communities across the country. By reaching agreement with the RMT, we can now focus fully on delivering a service which our customers expect and deserve.”
