TSSA members vote to accept ScotRail pay offer


The TSSA has called off its dispute with ScotRail, with its members having voted to accept a new pay offer.

The TSSA says the offer amounts to a 2.5 per cent pay increase which has been backdated to 1 April 2021 and a 2.2 per cent increase effective from 1 April 2022. As part of the deal, it says there will also be a one-off £300 payment for all staff working during the COP26 climate change summit. 

The agreement brings all ongoing disputes and industrial action to an end, meaning that TSSA’s members in the conductor team manager and revenue team manager grades will no longer officially be participating in lawful industrial action.

Manuel Cortes, TSSA.

Manuel Cortes, TSSA general secretary, said: “The overwhelming majority of our members voted to accept the offer and we have written to the company to accept it.

“We are aware that the RMT are continuing with their industrial action, as is their legal right. We have made it clear to both ScotRail and Transport Scotland that we will not accept our members being instructed to cover the duties and responsibilities of other grades due to industrial action or staff shortages.

“We remain fully opposed to any service reductions or booking office closures and will campaign vigorously to defend a fully staffed and comprehensive service across Scotland’s railway.”
