Remember the dead – Fight for the living

It was an honour to represent the Scottish Labour Party at the Workers’ Memorial service in Inverness this afternoon.

Trade union representatives present echoed why we need to remember those who lost their lives in the workplace and keep pushing forward to ensure Health and Safety regulations are continually reviewed and acted upon.

I paid tribute to Ken MacMillan (formerly of UNISON) who, along with others, worked tirelessly to establish the memorial stone and the annual services that now take place every year at Friars Shott on the banks of the River Ness.

Cllr Bet McAllister and I laid a wreath at the memorial stone after the service.
