Union chief’s call to scrap West Coast ferry tendering

THE HEAD of a transport workers’ trade union insists lifeline ferry services on the West Coast should not be put out to tender again after visiting ferry ports at Mallaig and Armadale.

Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association (TSSA) general secretary Manuel Cortes has been touring the West Coast, meeting CalMac workers in Mallaig and Armadale as part of a campaign to prevent the re-tendering of lifeline ferry services.
