ScotRail agrees 5% pay deal with train drivers union

A deal has been struck that could end the pay dispute between ScotRail and its train drivers.

Aslef, the union representing the drivers, agreed a 5% pay deal after negotiations with the rail provider’s management.

It had previously rejected a 4.2% pay offer and threatened strike action.

The dispute has seen ScotRail introduce a greatly reduced timetable after drivers refused to work on their rest days.

The union said it would recommend members accept the offer.

ScotRail, which was nationalised by the Scottish government in April, welcomed the progress made in the talks, saying the offer “delivers good value for the public”.

The operator has separately warned that UK-wide action planned by the RMT union could wipe out train services in Scotland on three days later this month.
