Covid Scotland: Vaccine passports 'could increase hesitancy', says Anas Sarwar

Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) have been warning of prolonged strike actions after no pay increase was offered.

Strikes among conductors have been taking place every Sunday since the end of March in a dispute over overtime pay.

Glasgow SNP MSPs have separately written to the RMT union asking them to suspend a ballot on proposed strike action that would disrupt the COP26 summit in Glasgow.
