Luxury boat-building organisation, Fairline Boats, has failed to pay employees’ pension contributions for three months.

Its 468 members of staff have not received pension contributions from the organisation since the beginning of October 2015, although the money has been deducted from workers’ pay packets.

Mick Orpin, regional officer at Unite the Union, which represents Fairline Boats’ staff, said: “We have just found out that the organisation has not been paying employees’ pension contributions, even though it has deducted from their wages.

“Questions certainly need to be asked as to why the current legislation can allow an employer to act in such a draconian way and treat its workforce in such a manner.”

Fairline Boats was unavailable for comment.
