Kirby praises ‘humour and spirit’ of referendum debate

#uNDC14 A packed fringe meeting today got the chance to discuss the detail of UNISON Scotland’s ‘challenging’ position on the referendum.
The meeting, addressed by Mike Kirby, UNISON Scottish Secretary and Lilian Macer, Scottish Convener, was held to put more meat on the bones than the strictures of the Conference hall debate could reasonably allow.
The union is challenging both camps to explain how their proposals will meet the objectives of our members.
Mike praised how the debate was being conducted in the union.
“It has been conducted with humour and in a spirit that should be a lesson to politicians. We need to take that same spirit out to and beyond the trade union movement”.
