Commenting on publication of the latest official labour market statistics for Scotland, Grahame Smith, Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) General Secretary said:
“As the STUC has consistently stated, these statistics indicate deteriorating labour market conditions and serious underlying problems. These problems include not just the availability of jobs, but job quality too.
“Continuing Tory austerity and now, Brexit uncertainty, pose real and continuing risks to employment levels over the period ahead. It is also vital that the Scottish budget prioritises the retention of public sector jobs and the best use of investment in enterprise to aid job creation.”
