Asked by: Katy Clark, West Scotland, Scottish Labour

Question

To ask the Scottish Government when it last discussed fair work practices, including the rights of workers to join trade unions, with Amazon.

Current status: Answered by Richard Lochhead on 20 January 2022


Answer

The Minister for Higher Education, Further Education, Youth Employment and Training met with Amazon on 2 September 2021. In his previous role as Minister for Business, Fair Work and Skills he met Amazon on several occasions to discuss Fair Work issues, emphasising the benefits of Fair Work for both Amazon staff and the organisation.

The Scottish Government remains committed to promoting Fair Work across the economy and encourages all employers to adopt fair work practices, including paying workers at least the real Living Wage and providing appropriate channels for effective voice, such as trade union recognition.
