Wage increases for agricultural staff

The Scottish Agricultural Wages Board has agreed proposed wage rates from October 2012 following their annual meeting on May 9, 2012. The basic rate of pay for agricultural workers with more than 26 weeks continuous employment will increase by 19p per hour to £6.86, bringing the minimum wage for a 39 hour week to £267.54. The basic rate of pay for agricultural workers with less than 26 weeks continuous employment will increase by 11p per hour to £6.22, bringing the minimum wage for a 39 hour week to £242.58.

The proposals will be advertised in detail during next week and written representations must be sent to the Board by June 10, 2012. The Board will meet again on August 22, 2012 to consider representations and, if it so decides, will make an Order giving effect to its proposals.

We are very grateful to Donald Noble, Hopetoun Estates, who represents Scottish Land & Estates on the Board.
