Railway workers in Scotland will take strike action on Scotrail after the union rejected a real terms pay cut.
ScotRail bosses have offered 5% but with inflation running at well over 11%, and a cost-of-living crisis that shows no signs of ending, RMT is demanding the company puts forward a decent proposal.
The day long stoppage will take place on 10 October, 2 days after national strike by Network Rail and 15 train operating companies across Britain.
RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: “ScotRail knows this offer is not good enough and needs to take into account the escalating cost of living crisis.
“Our members refuse to be made poorer and will exercise their industrial strength to let ScotRail know that they will not rest until they are paid what they deserve.”
