GMB Scotland Secretary Gary Smith: “Delighted to meet @Ianblackford_MP and @ChrisStephens to discuss Contracts for Difference and the lack of jobs in Scottish Renewables amongst other issues. Good productive discussion.”

Today we celebrate #EleanorMarxDay, paying tribute to socialist, feminist, trade unionist & internationalist Eleanor Marx, who co-founded our union in 1889. Shona Thomson, winner of the Eleanor Marx award at #GMB19, cut the cake with our Education Officer Sandie Rowlands.
