THE would-be leader of the rail union RMT has warned of the prospects of Scottish strikes to win more pay and shorter working weeks for workers.
Alan Pottage says he would not hesitate to bring Scotland's rail network to a standstill and talks of using civil disobedience to support a future strike.
RAIL workers in London are to stage a series of strikes in three separate disputes which could impact on commuters and holidaymakers.
THOUSANDS of people are expected to attend a May Day event to honour the lives of rail union leader Bob Crow and veteran politician and campaigner Tony Benn.
The funeral of rail union leader Bob Crow will be held on March 24, with the service being private, and a bigger event planned on May Day.
