SCOTRAIL bosses have been urged by the Greens to urgently resolve an ongoing industrial dispute with workers.

Fewer than 15% of services will be running north of the Border today due to ongoing strike action.

The RMT union has held a series of stoppages on Sundays over payments for conductors and ticket examiners working on days off.

But ScotRail has called the action “unjustified”, claiming the union is seeking 50% more pay for working the same number of overtime hours.

ScotRail has also issued a series of warnings for fans returning from the England versus Euro 2020 clash today to plan their onward travel in Scotland because of the strikes.

This led to a furious response from the RMT, which accused ScotRail of trying to “turn Scottish football fans against ScotRail workers”.

Scottish Greens transport spokesperson Mark Ruskell said ScotRail bosses need to “get round the table” with the RMT to resolve the situation urgently and stop “attacking” staff on social media.

He added: “The Transport Secretary must make it immediately clear to Abellio that it has a duty to its staff, and passengers, to resolve this situation. It is a problem of the operator’s own making and one that it has an obligation to fix.

“Ministers are ultimately responsible for the operation of our railways and cannot sit back while the private operator attacks the frontline staff who have gone above and beyond during the pandemic to keep our railways running.”

David Simpson, the operations director at ScotRail, accused the union of spreading “misinformation” which the Greens were repeating.

He said: “Hundreds of fans are expected to travel back to Scotland on Sunday, after the match on Friday, and we have a duty to let people know that when they do return, there will be very few services operating due to strike action by the RMT.”

He continued: “You would think the Scottish Greens would realise that we are meeting our obligation to customers by advising them to make sure they have arranged their onward travel.”
