Partnership the way forward — T&G

THE best way out of the crisis in farming is could be through partnerships involving employers, workers and the government.

That is the view of David Stark, the regional industrial organiser for the agricultural section of the Transport and General Workers Union (T&G).

Mr Stark believes the farming sector is a very efficient industry producing quality products which should be promoted and marketed more vigorously.

He also believes in higher wages for farm workers and welcomes the recent “stable incomes supplement” which spreads farm workers earnings throughout the year.

Mr Stark is the leader of the employee negotiating team on the Scottish Agricultural Wages Board.
