Do you have the skills and experience to help workers’ and employers’ representatives to reach fair and reasonable settlements on matters relating to agricultural wages, holiday entitlement and other relevant terms and conditions of service?
Scottish Ministers are looking to appoint a new Chair and up to two new Members of the Scottish Agricultural Wages Board from 1 May 2021. The Scottish Agricultural Wages Board is an Executive Non-Departmental Public Body set up under the Agricultural Wages (Scotland) Act 1949. Its purpose is to make statutory Orders fixing minimum wage rates, holiday entitlement and other terms and conditions of service for workers employed in agriculture in Scotland. The Board’s Orders are legally enforceable and the Scottish Government Rural Directorate has a duty to investigate complaints about non-compliance. It also carries out random test inspections on agricultural holdings to ensure compliance and pursues recovery of arrears on behalf of workers.
