Here we go again ~

Talks over a pay dispute between ferry operator Caledonian MacBrayne and the RMT union have broken down.

The union claims CalMac offered a two-year pay rate based on the consumer price index rather than the retail price index, which would mean staff pay will “fall behind the cost of living”.

A yearly bonus of 1.5% if the company makes a profit is also under threat, the RMT said.

They will be an absolute world class company plus some, if they can repay all the subsidies they receive, then make a profit, which apparently they can then give a dividend to their staff. Is it just me, or is this idea some truly masterful fictional dream?

  • I don’t know about the MV Isle of Mull, but can’t agree about the Coruisk. The Coruisk has sailed numerous times between Gourock and Dunoon during the hours of darkness.
