Strike action that would have affected the COP26 Climate Summit has been called off

The news has been confirmed by the RMT Union

Rail strikes during Cop26 have been called off as a dispute over pay has been settled, the RMT has confirmed.

The announcement was made on Wednesday evening following talks between the trade union and transport bosses.

The union confirmed the planned industrial action would be “withdrawn immediately” as members welcome a recent agreement on a pay rise.

The Scottish Government and ScotRail imposed a deadline of 5pm on Wednesday for a resolution to the dispute over pay and conditions.

In a letter sent to union members after Wednesday evening’s talks, RMT general secretary Michael Lynch said: “I can advise you that subsequent negotiations have been held and that your union made a counter offer to ScotRail.

“By accepting the offer all industrial action is now cancelled and I instruct you all to work normally on the days you had previously been instructed to take action on.”
