SCOTLAND’S most senior trade unionist has called for the “greatest possible choice” in a second independence referendum, but stressed that workers “can’t afford to wait” until any future vote for action on jobs and the economy.
STUC general secretary Roz Foyer told the organisation’s annual congress that any future referendum must not be a “simple binary choice” between independence and remaining in the union.
Speaking at the virtual event, she said that the STUC will continue to “engage with the evolving debate on Scotland’s constitution,” reiterating the “right of the people of Scotland to determine their own constitutional path.”
Foyer, the STUC’s first female general secretary, told delegates that “key lessons” have been learned about the state of the country, highlighting issues brought about by the binary vote on Brexit in 2016.
She added: “The devil will be in the detail and the general council supports giving the greatest possible choice to the Scottish people, should the time come for another referendum.”
