RMT將在聖誕節前升級蘇格蘭鐵路公司的罷工行動

蘇格蘭鐵路公司的服務將在一場重要的國際橄欖球比賽當天停頓下來

在與蘇格蘭鐵路公司的薪酬糾紛中,鐵路工人將在聖誕節前加強他們的罷工行動。

RMT工會已宣布計劃在11月19日蘇格蘭對阿根廷的國際橄欖球賽當天進行罷工,並在此後的每個周五和周六罷工,直到聖誕節。

工會在蘇格蘭的組織者Mick Hogg告訴BBC,該行動的目的是 "集中思想,尋找解決方案"。

這家國有鐵路公司表示,它將給工資最低的工人增加7.5%的工資,但在RMT拒絕取消上周六的罷工後,該協議已被撤銷,罷工導致鐵路網癱瘓,在中央地帶只有三條線路上有有限的服務。

這是RMT在爭議中舉行的第二次為期一天的罷工,工會之前說它會 "認真考慮 "8.2%的加薪。


ScotRail services are set to come to a halt on the day of a major international rugby match

Rail workers are to intensify their strike action ahead of Christmas in a pay dispute with ScotRail.

The RMT union has announced plans for a walkout on the day of Scotland's rugby international against Argentina on 19 November and on every Friday and Saturday after that until Christmas.

The union's organiser in Scotland, Mick Hogg, told the BBC action was designed to "focus minds to find a solution".

The nationalised rail firm said it would have given the lowest paid workers a 7.5% rise but that deal has since been withdrawn after the RMT refused to cancel a strike last Saturday which crippled the network, with a limited service running on only three routes in the central belt.

It was the second one-day strike the RMT has held in the dispute, with the union previously saying it would "seriously consider" an 8.2% increase.
