“The trade union should accept the no industrial action demand from the company with no strings attached” (Alex Salmond) 20/10/13 speaking live on ‘Sunday Politics’ show.
Here is the snp’s anti trade union agenda red in tooth and claw, he wants a servile toothless trade union movement where the bosses can do anything they want without having to worry about industrial action and the workers will be no better than slaves. Can you imagine the management regime at Grangemouth tomorrow. Monday morning; faced with a work force whose trade union is completely emasculated? That is what salmond is demanding, a nice place for shop stewards and conveners who have stood up to managers before to work eh? How long would they last without the protection of industrial action when they need it? This statement could only come from a reactionary anti union Tory, in this case one who calls himself a nationalist, Alex Salmond. Will any snp members denounce his treachery? I have heard of an ‘snp trade union group’ but I haven’t heard ‘from them’. Have they nothing to say about this blatantly pro management anti union stance from their toadying leader, he is a disgrace to the Scottish people.
