Scottish Agricultural Wages Board


The Scottish Agricultural Wages Board is an Executive Non-Departmental Public Body set up under the Agricultural Wages (Scotland) Act 1949.

The SAWB meets twice a year in order to determine the minimum gross wages payable to agricultural workers and to set conditions for holiday and sick pay entitlement.

The rates of pay which take effect from 1 April 2019 are detailed in the Agricultural wages in Scotland: guide for workers and employers
