A people’s CalMac – NO to ferry privatisation
CalMac ferries is a national asset providing lifeline ferry services. RMT members working on these services, as well as the passengers and communities they serve, know that it needs public investment to change gear and deliver the reliable, affordable and clean services that are needed for the decades ahead.
The current Clyde and Hebrides Ferry Service operated by CalMac expires in September 2024, RMT is opposed to privatisation and wants all ferry services to be in the public sector. That's why we RMT has launched the campaign for a People's CalMac.
We are calling for:
More investment - for more reliable, frequent and additional services.
More affordable - with fairer ferry fares, including for commercial drivers.
More of a say - with a stronger voice for communities, passengers and workers.
More good jobs - already employing 1700 people, CalMac is at the heart of Clyde and Hebrides communities, as well as Scotland's maritime industry.
