On International Workers Memorial Day 2023 the STUC, together with 16 Scottish trade unions, Scottish Hazards and Action on Asbestos, issued a joint statement in support of the Proposed Scottish Employment Injuries Advisory Council Bill.
Importantly, the bill would give workers and trade unionists a permanent role on the council, advising on the new injury benefit, which would include acknowledging Long Covid as an industrial disease, and recognise women’s health and safety at work. The STUC has shared a toolkit to support trade unions to raise awareness and campaign for the bill.
