TRAIN drivers have voted to just accept an improved pay provide from ScotRail, paving the best way for the tip of the supplier’s non permanent timetable.
On Monday, it was introduced that members voted in favour of the deal – and now their pay will climb by 5%.
Aslef Scottish organiser Kevin Lindsay mentioned: “Following a poll on the improved provide negotiated with ScotRail, Aslef members have voted to just accept the proposals on pay and circumstances.
“Aslef is a democratic, lay, member-led union, and I wish to thank our members for his or her engagement and response to the poll.”
In Could Aslef members started to refuse to work time beyond regulation and relaxation days in a dispute over pay.
Some 700 companies had been then slashed from timetables on Could 23, a transfer Transport Minister Jenny Gilruth mentioned would offer better certainty.
It was reported that if drivers accepted the rise, the non permanent timetable could possibly be in place for as much as 10 extra days.
In response to ScotRail, 2.2% of the rise might be funded by Transport Scotland with the remaining 2.8% coming from ScotRail’s coffers.
