Workers on ScotRail will strike on October 10 in a dispute over pay, the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union has announced.

Some parts of the country will have no trains during the strike by the rail union in the long-running dispute over pay, jobs and conditions, passengers have been warned.

Union members voted on Tuesday to strike after rejecting the improved five per cent pay offer from ScotRail. 

Scotrail announced on social media that action would take place on October 10 and that is in addtion "to the strikes announced by RMT members at Network rail on 1 and 8 October".

The strikes coincide with the SNP’s annual conference. The conference is being held from Saturday, October 8, through to the Monday in Aberdeen.

The Scottish Government, which nationalised ScotRail in April, have previously stated: “There can be no increase on the current pay offer."
