To ask the Scottish Government what assessment it has made of the payment of the living wage in the Scottish ferries sector.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 14 November 2016
The Scottish Government is committed to ensuring that those employed in the Scottish ferry sectors are paid the Living Wage.
Crew directly employed by David MacBrayne Ltd, Serco NorthLink Ferries Ltd and Marine Scotland are paid above the National Minimum Wage. I can confirm that David MacBrayne Ltd are a Living Wage employer.
