MSP comes out in support of Dounreay workers’ pay claim

15 December 2016

MSP Rhoda Grant has called on Dounreay Site Restoration Ltd (DSRL) to shift from its seemingly intractable position of offering its workers only a 1% pay deal.

 Mrs Grant, who represents Labour in the Highlands and Islands, recently met with representatives of the Thurso and Wick Trades Union Council.

 “As people may be aware, unions are in negotiations with the company regarding annual cost of living increase,” explained Mrs Grant.

 “Negotiations have been protracted because the offer of 1% is not acceptable and has been overwhelmingly rejected by members.
