Scottish Greens comment on Aslef and ScotRail agreement

The Scottish Greens economic spokesperson, Maggie Chapman, said:

"It is great that ASLEF and Scotrail have come to an agreement that secures improved pay and conditions for train drivers in Scotland. It is an important step forward and underlines the huge importance of trade unions, particularly at a time when the UK Government is trying to crack down even harder on the rights of workers to organise."

"We will be making representations to ScotRail in the days and weeks ahead to ensure that services across Scotland are restored as soon as possible."
