Once more BBC Scotland hides the facts in an attempt to put the viewer on the side of the ASLEF members and against Scotrail who run the system on behalf of the Scottish Government. Why is there no reporting or discussion of their 10% claim and whether or not that is reasonable? Why is this context not offered?
ScotRail drivers typically earn more than £50,000 a year and a 2.2% pay increase was offered, with the opportunity to take part in a revenue share agreement, which would take the total package to 5%.https://www.insider.co.uk/news/scotrail-boss-says-train-driver-27039221
The total offer is 5% for a group earning well over the national average wage of £31 000.
