The main union at ScotRail expects to press ahead with a threatened ballot to ban overtime that it warned would cause 'massive' disruption to passengers. It followed a meeting with ScotRail that broke up without agreement. A Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union official said it was '99.9 per cent' likely the vote would be ordered once a staff body was consulted on Thursday. The dispute centres on train conductors and other staff represented by the union earning less than half as much as drivers for working on days off. They receive £112-140 compared to drivers' £300 for 'rest day working'.
