Transport Scotland meets regularly with a range of industry stakeholders including Network Rail and the Department of Transport to discuss a range of topics including industrial relations issues. The Minister for Transport and Islands has also recently had a number of discussions with both the RMT and the ScotRail Alliance to encourage both parties to continue to talk in order to find an operational solution.
