The 2010 Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) Women's Conference, held 1-2 November 2010 in the Concert Hall, Perth has carried an emergency motion moved by Rozanne Foyer of UNITE condemning the closure of the Women’s National Commission (WNC).

“Closure of Women’s National Commission”

“That this Conference notes the UK Government announcement of 14 October of its intention to close the Women’s National Commission (WNC). For over 40 years, the WNC has given an independent voice for women’s organisations across the UK.

“At a time when Scottish women’s voices need to be clearly heard at every level of government, Conference condemns the decision to close the WNC and asks the STUC Women’s Committee to immediately contact the Secretary of State for Scotland and the Minister for Women and Equalities.”
