ScotRail overtime ban

17 September 2013

ASLEF is to ballot its members at ScotRail for an overtime ban – including working on Sundays – in pursuit of its pay claim. Members voted by 445-407 to reject the company’s offer. So the executive committee, meeting in London, has called for a ballot for industrial action short of a strike.

Kevin Lindsay, the ASLEF organiser in Scotland, said: ‘We are still looking for a negotiated settlement and there is still time for negotiations. But we are looking to ScotRail to come back with an improved offer as our members have rejected what was on the table. They are fed up with being at the bottom of the pay league, among the privatised train operating companies in Britain, and they want ScotRail to remedy that situation.’
