RMT members vote to accept ScotRail pay offer

Last updated: Thursday, 24 November 2022

The RMT trade union has today confirmed that its general grades members have voted to accept the improved pay offer made by ScotRail.

The union had recommended that members accept the deal when it was put to a vote, with the referendum closing today (Thursday, 24 November).

This deal only applies to ScotRail employees and is separate to the current pay dispute and industrial action being taken by Network Rail staff who are members of the RMT.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail Head of Customer Operations, said:

“We are delighted that RMT members have voted to accept this pay offer. We worked hard to put forward an offer which recognises the hard work of staff, as well as the financial challenges faced by the railway as we recover from the pandemic.

“ScotRail, our staff, and our customers want to have a reliable, safe, and sustainable railway that supports the economy and connects communities across the country. By reaching agreement with the RMT, we can now focus fully on delivering a service which our customers expect and deserve.”
