The Jimmy Reid Foundation is pleased to announce that it is hosting a lunchtime fringe meeting on its research report against the renewal of Trident (see http://reidfoundation.org/portfolio/stop-trident-renewal/ ) at the 2017 STUC congress in Aviemore on Monday 24 April at 12.30pm. The meeting is entitled ‘Trident and jobs – facts and fiction’.
Chaired by Lynn Henderson, the vice-chair of the Foundation and PCS national officer, the meeting will hear from Gary Smith (GMB Scottish Secretary), Richard Hardy (Prospect union Scottish Secretary), John McInally (PCS national vice-president) and Professor Mike Danson (lead author of the report, Heriot Watt university).
It will no doubt be a lively exchange of views and one of the highlights of this year’s congress. We hope that the aforementioned report will provide for an informed, productive and stimulating exchange of views.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the GMB, Prospect, PCS and UCU unions in hosting this event.
The event is part of the work of the Foundation in disseminating its publications to interested groups and parties.
