Johnstone Concerned At Pay Rise For Lothian Buses Chief

Alison Johnstone, MSP for Lothian, is expressing concern at the 26 per cent rise in pay for the chief executive of Lothian Buses.

Ian Craig’s salary is now £265,000.

Alison said:

“Lothian Buses provide a high quality service compared to other cities and managers deserve praise for improvements but I’m sure lower paid workers in the company won’t have seen massive wage rises like this, despite having to deal directly with the on-going disruption to routes in the city centre. The company should focus on spreading wages more equally throughout the company, with a living wage for the lowest paid.”
