UNISON, Scotland’s largest trade union, has given its backing to Katy Clark MP in the contest for the next Scottish Labour Deputy leader.
UNISON Scotland Labour Link Chair Gordon McKay said:
“Katy Clark has a great record of campaigning on the issues that matter to UNISON members in Scotland. On public services, employment rights, pensions, inequality and many other concerns.
“Her views have remained consistent with Labour’s traditions and values and that is vital if Scottish Labour is to build its support in Scotland. Katy has shown before and after becoming an MP that she is on the side of working people.”
