Motion text

That this House notes the importance of COP26 to Scotland and humanity; recognises the rights of workers and their trade unions to seek to defend their standard of living and terms and conditions of employment; and further recognises the determination and resilience of the RMT trade union and of rail workers in refusing to give in to an arbitrary deadline imposed by the Scottish Government and Transport Scotland for the RMT trade union to accept the proposed deal or the whole pay offer will be withdrawn and calls for politicians to seek and encourage a fair settlement rather than deprecating workers or trade unions defending their rights.
