Commenting on the latest government climb down on Trade Union Bill STUC General Secretary Grahame Smith said
"This latest climb down is a testament to the strength of the campaigning by unions to protect their members rights and further exposes the lack of democracy at the heart of the government approach.
“Despite today's concessions significant threats to the right to take industrial action and to unions ability to organise remain in the bill. The STUC is committed to fighting every clause. If the bill does become law, the STUC will continue to work with the Scottish Government and across political parties to frustrate the implementation of the bill”
