Earlier this month the RMT union announced its members at Network Rail will take strike action on November 5 (Saturday), November 7 (Monday), and November 9 (Wednesday) across the railway network resulting from a pay dispute with the track and infrastructure operator. While the strikes didn’t affect ScotRail, they have a major impact on the train operator’s ability to provide services as the RMT planned action involves Network Rail staff in Scotland.
These strikes were suspended around 5pm on Friday 4 November after securing intensive negotiations with rail bosses. But due to the timing, ScotRail have announced that they are still running a reduced timetable today (5 November). The operator tweeted: “Due to the short period of time available, the limited timetable that was due to operate during the planned strike action will remain in place for tomorrow ( 5 November). We'll update you on the resumption of full service ASAP.”
