Motion text

That this House commends the Arlington Baths Club, based in the West End of Glasgow, on its payment of the Scottish Living Wage of at least £8.25 per hour to all employees; welcomes the news that, since its introduction of the scheme in April 2014, the staff-run organisation has found that this has led to increased staff morale and retention; notes that the club was an early pioneer of the Scottish Living Wage scheme, itself introduced in April 2014, and is now joined by over 500 accredited organisations across Scotland; believes that the Arlington Baths Club, as the oldest swimming club in Glasgow, has shown leadership in staffing practices; and encourages other sports and swimming clubs to follow this example and reap the benefits of investing in staff through paying the Scottish Living Wage.
