Scottish Agricultural Wages Board

Agreement on pay levels for farm workers

The Scottish Agricultural Wages Board has agreed a single minimum level of pay for agricultural workers to come into force from April 1, 2020. It represents an increase of 3% across all allowances, and includes a single minimum hourly rate for all workers, irrespective of age and duties, that is equal to the UK Government’s National Living Wage.

Apprentices who undertake a SCQF level four or five Modern Apprenticeship in agriculture or an equivalent qualification, will get an hourly rate of £5.46 and there will be an additional sum of £1.29 per hour for workers who have an appropriate qualification.
