Motion ref. S6M-02740.2

Addressing the Impacts of Labour Shortages on Scotland’s Economy - Amendment

Submitted by: Paul Sweeney, Glasgow, Scottish Labour.
Date lodged: Monday, January 10, 2022

Supported by: Daniel Johnson
Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Tuesday, January 11, 2022

As an amendment to motion S6M-02740 in the name of Kate Forbes (Addressing the Impacts of Labour Shortages on Scotland’s Economy), leave out from “believes” to “fair work” and insert “notes the finding from the Scottish Fiscal Commission that Scotland’s economy is lagging behind the rest of the UK, partly due to factors that predate the COVID-19 pandemic, such as declining labour market participation, weak investment in productivity and insufficient flexibility in skills development; considers that building a more sustainable and resilient economy will require an industrial strategy that addresses regional inequalities, low pay and poor conditions, and the skills gaps across Scotland; believes that the Scottish Government and its agencies must do more work with employers, business organisations, trade unions, colleges and universities to address recruitment and retention, promote fair work and offer more flexibility in reskilling opportunities for workers”.
