TSSA union ends dispute with ScotRail as members accept pay increase PA Media

A union has ended its dispute with ScotRail and will no longer take part in industrial action after accepting a pay deal.

The TSSA represents managers in the conductor and revenue teams at Scotland’s train operator.

The union said its members have voted to accept an improved pay offer.

Scotland’s railways have been crippled for months by strikes, with most Sunday services cancelled.

The RMT union currently plans to strike during the COP26 climate conference being staged in Glasgow.

In September it launched a campaign with TSSA, Aslef and Unite to “save” the railway, protesting outside Bute House, the official residence of the First Minister in Edinburgh.

TSSA said it has now accepted an offer that amounts to a 2.5% pay increase backdated to April 1, 2021, and a 2.2% increase effective from April 1, 2022.

There will also be a one-off £300 payment for staff working during COP26.
