Industrial Action

Last updated: Wednesday, 29 November 2023

This page is dedicated to keeping you updated about upcoming industrial action by rail unions, which may affect ScotRail services.

Members of the train drivers union, ASLEF, at various train operating companies across the UK plan to take strike action on Saturday, 2 December and Sunday, 3 December, and again between Tuesday, 5 December and Friday, 8 December.

The trade union’s members at those operators will also withdraw from non-contractual overtime between Friday, 1 December and Saturday, 9 December.

ScotRail services will be unaffected on these dates. The industrial action is a result of a dispute between the trade unions and a number of other train operating companies across the UK, and does not involve any ScotRail staff.
