STUC on Award of CalMac Tender
Commenting on the Scottish Government's decision to award the Clyde and Hebrides Ferry Contract 2016-2024 to CalMac, Grahame Smith, STUC General Secretary said:
"This is the correct decision and one that finally provides both the workforce and communities they serve with some certainty and security.
"However delight with the decision is tempered with disappointment that this hugely wasteful, expensive and destabilising exercise was undertaken. The STUC notes that the two tender exercises undertaken have failed to generate a single compliant bid to compete with CalMac.
"The STUC hopes that the period of stability post contract award will be used wisely by the Scottish Government to avoid another repeat of this farcical process in the future".
