Mick Whelan, general secretary of ASLEF, has written to management in the strongest terms demanding an apology in respect of a public notice put out by First ScotRail regarding disruption in services on Sunday 6 October 2013.

Mick says: 'The company is attempting to use our current 2013 pay dispute to implicate our members for their failure to provide a service without disruption.

'It is ASLEF’s view that this was an irresponsible and inflammatory move on part of First ScotRail which misled members of the public and, potentially, exposed train drivers to abuse and harassment.

'We will not be dissuaded by these unscrupulous tactics from affording our members the democratic right to vote on, and take part in, industrial action should that be the decision of the majority.

'As always, your union relies on the infallible solidarity of its members.'
