Date lodged: 21 January 2022
To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on the appointment of (a) trade union and (b) passenger representatives on the board of the new company that will run Scotland's Railway.
Answered by: Jenny Gilruth 4 February 2022
a) Discussions with the Rail Trade Union representatives are underway on this topic and we have recently received a proposition from the Unions that is now under consideration.
b) There is an existing Stakeholder Board on which passenger representatives sit, that will continue with the new company, whose chair will attend the ScotRail Trains Limited Board in the same manner as they do presently.
