Ferry operator Caledonian MacBrayne (CalMac) wins award for its support of trade union-led training in the workplace.

The award, from Scottish Union Learning in the Highlands and Islands, was presented to the company at an awards dinner held in Inverness recently to celebrate 10 years of union-led learning in the Highlands and Islands. It was accepted on behalf of CalMac by the Managing Director of David MacBrayne (HR) UK Ltd, Wendy Allardes.

Scottish Union Learning (SUL) supports trade unions in accessing skills and lifelong learning opportunities for workers across Scotland.
CalMac Managing Director Martin Dorchester said: “CalMac is very proud of its record for encouraging and supporting staff, whether shore-based or at sea, in developing their skills and expertise, so it is very gratifying to receive this award from Scottish Union Learning. It also highlights the valuable role CalMac plays in the life of the Highlands and Islands that goes beyond delivering essential ferry services.”

SUL  is part of the STUC, which first established a union learning office in Inverness in 2003, with a dedicated staff member to support unions develop union-led learning in the Highlands and Islands.
