More days of disruption on trains despite deal on table

Rail services could be disrupted for another 10 days, even if a pay deal with drivers is agreed.

Drivers are currently considering a 4.2% pay increase – which could rise to 9.2% if ScotRail hits revenue targets – with the state-owned operator hoping acceptance will get services running normally.

However, ScotRail’s service delivery director, David Simpson, said returning to full service would be complicated. He said: “It’s up to 10 days to restore the full timetable. It’s a complex process, it involves all parts of the industry changing rosters.”

A ScotRail driver ­typically earns £50,000 a year before overtime. Drivers previously refused an offer of a 2.2%.

As part of the action drivers are refusing to work overtime on rest days, resulting in 700 fewer services run daily.

ScotRail warned of more cancellations today. A statement said: “It hasn’t been possible to implement a temporary timetable. That means the normal Sunday timetable will be in operation and there will be cancellations.

“We apologise to ­customers and advise them to check their journeys on our website and app before travelling.”

The ongoing dispute has triggered calls for pay rises across Scotland’s public sector.

Cosla, the umbrella group representing councils, has called for “significant” rises for other staff such as cleaners and teachers.
