SNP Spring Conference, Saturday 27th April 2019
SNP Trades Union Group fringe meeting
The Scottish Trade Union campaign to tackle Corporate Homicide is as old as the Scottish Parliament. From 2006 the received wisdom has been because any Act would relate to H&S, which is not devolved, the Scottish Parliament may not have legislative competence.
This view was clearly politically motivated at the time but it has remained received wisdom within the civil service.
The Trade Unions’ campaign however will not go away. Trade Unions’ believe there is a solution using a previously untested section of the Scotland Act.
We call upon the political will of the Scottish Government to look at this alternative and right the political wrongs of previous Scottish Executives - it is a win-win.
This is arranged jointly by the TUG and Scottish Hazards and the Speakers are:
Patrick McGuire, Legal Advisor to Scottish Hazards
Lynn Henderson, Past President, Scottish Trades Union Congress
Chris Stephens MP, Shadow SNP Spokesperson (Fair Work and Employment)
Chair: Greg McCarra, Convener, SNP Trade Union Group
