Responding to reports that the RMT are to take industrial action, Scottish Greens Transport Spokesperson John Finnie MSP said:

“Serco is an entirely disreputable company that has a long record of mismanaging public services.

“I have repeatedly raised concerns about the management of the Caledonian Sleeper franchise and fully support the RMT’s decision to take industrial action. The health and well-being of staff must come first, and it’s clear this isn’t a priority for Serco.

“The Scottish Government should strip Serco of the Sleeper franchise for its dismal performance, and stop doing business with this predatory company.

“Ministers are due to award the contract for the Northern Isles Ferry Services in the coming weeks. I’m calling on the Transport Secretary to rule out giving another important contract to Serco.”
