Commenting on the Scottish Government’s publication of the Fair Work Action Plan, STUC General Secretary Grahame Smith said:
“The Fair Work Action Plan demonstrates a commitment to using the powers the Government has at its disposal to deliver Fair Work, which is good for workers and good for business. Through Fair Work First, it lays the foundations for ensuring that Fair Work is mainstreamed throughout the Scottish Government’s role as a provider of major contracts and grants for business.
“Crucially, it recognises the fundamental importance of strong unions in achieving Fair Work. We welcome the ongoing commitment to the Trade Union Fair Work and Modernisation Fund and STUC Leadership and Equality fund”
"We also look forward to working with the Government and other stakeholders to develop collective and sectoral bargaining across the economy with the key sectors of social care and early years and child care; hospitality; and construction as the initial focus.”
