Today the last train left the Caley and the workers left with their heads held high for the last time.
It was an honour to work with Unite Scotland, National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) and Paul Sweeney MP over the past seven months – I will continue to do so to help secure a future for the site and workers.
The workers at the Caley Rail Depot have fought with great dignity to save the plant. They have been treated shamefully by the Scottish Government. They are absolutely right to continue their fight. The plant is profitable and well capable of supporting rail infrastructure.
