Rail Workers Ask For Glasgow 2014 Bonuses

Union leaders are asking for extra payments for thousands of rail workers who will be on duty over next year's Commonwealth Games.

The Rail Maritime and Transport union called on rail companies and Network Rail to agree ``recognition and reward'' payments for workers delivering services before and during Glasgow 2014 

The union said it will be looking for similar deals to ones it struck for last year's Olympic Games in London, when workers were paid hundreds of pounds in extra bonuses. 

RMT officials said they would be seeking flat-rate rises for all grades of rail workers in Scotland and on companies whose services cross the border with England.
