RMT members vote to accept ScotRail pay offer

Last updated: Friday, 23 June 2023

The RMT trade union has today announced that its general grades members have voted to accept the 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, 8 June).

The deal means that all general grades, such as conductors, ticket examines, and station staff, will see a five per cent pay for rise for 2023/24, with an additional £750 increase for lowest paid members of staff.

ASLEF – the train drivers’ union – is currently conducting a referendum of its members on a similar pay offer.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail Head of Customer Operations, said:

“The acceptance of the deal is fantastic news for our staff and our customers, delivering some certainty on Scotland’s Railway for the weeks and months ahead.

“We are grateful to our trade union colleagues for their constructive approach to negotiations, which resulted in a strong offer. This delivers a well-earned pay increase, while providing value for the taxpayer in the challenging financial environment in which the railway operates.”
