RMT Press Office:

As MOD fires SERCO from shared services contract RMT calls on Scottish Government to take note.

General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"The fact that SERCO are being dumped from their lucrative four year contract for MoD shared services when it expires this year is another bitter blow to these specialists in failure whose balance sheet is already shot to bits. It will add further serious questions about their financial stability.
"With SERCO the only current private bidders for the C‎alMac-run Clyde and Hebrides services it is time for the Scottish Parliament to wake up, take note and rule these basket-cases out as wholly unsuitable to operate life line ferry routes.
"The same arguments apply to the Caledonian Sleeper where SERCO's failures and penny pinching have provoked anger and industrial action. The Scottish Government should do what the MOD have done and pull that contract from SERCO and bring the route in house. "
