Drew Smith MSP has submitted a motion highlighting the activities taking place in the Scottish Parliament during Trade Union Week 21-23 February

S4M-02062 Drew Smith () (Scottish Labour):

That the Parliament welcomes Trade Union Week 2012, which is taking place in the Parliament on 21 to 23 February; understands that it is an opportunity for MSPs and all Parliament staff to find out more about what is happening in workplaces around the country and for trade union workplace representatives to meet MSPs and learn more about the Parliament; further understands that the STUC brings together 36 different trade unions and will be taking part in events all week, including the Parliament’s Economy Energy and Tourism Committee seminar, Growth vs. the Golden Rules, and the Equal Opportunities Committee roundtable session, women and work, a Scottish Union Learning event and a Unions into Schools event; considers that Trade Union Week highlights the participation and involvement of the trade union movement in the Scottish parliamentary process, and believes that the Parliament and Scottish Government should continue to work with the trade unions to create a fairer, more equal Scotland.
