Railway employees are on strike. Scotland At the entire Cop26 World Climate Conference, the RMT Union has confirmed, which is causing a lot of disruption.
Scott Rail crews will strike from Monday, November 1, to Friday, November 12.
The Caledonian sleeper crew, which operates the circus, will go on two 24-hour strikes – one Sunday, October 31 at 11.59am and one Thursday, November 11, from 11.59am.
Industrial action is in dispute over wages and conditions.
RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said: “Both Scotrell and the Caledonian Sleeper have had a fair amount of time before COP26 to settle a fair wage for Scottish rail workers. But the process has to be put on hold today.
“We know that these strikes will shut down rail services in Scotland, but we blame Abelio, the SERCO and the political leadership of Hollywood.
“Now is the time for all parties to take their rail workers seriously, return to the table and put them on our green front line. Transport The justice, respect and reward they deserve. ”
The union had earlier announced the results of the ballot, with 84% of the more than 2,000 members supporting further strikes over the Scott Rail dispute.
Sunday’s train service in Scotland has been suspended for months as workers protest wages and conditions.
Speaking before announcing the strike dates, a Scot Rail spokesman said: She is tough.
“We have made a formal written offer to all four rail trade unions to agree on pay and terms, and they are taking the offer to their executives.
“We need to change to make the railways more sustainable and green for the future and reduce the burden on taxpayers.
“All of us in the railways – management, staff, trade unions, suppliers and the government – need to work together to modernize the railways so that it is fit for the future.”
Prime Minister Nicolas Sturgeon said last week that he hoped the dispute would be resolved before COP 26.
He said: “I would strongly encourage both sides in this dispute to come to the table and find a resolution that is in the interest of those working in our railways.”
