MSPs to hear from women in the workplace

With rising unemployment and cuts in public spending, women in Scotland are losing jobs or facing big changes in working hours, and conditions. Changes in the tax credit and benefit system at Westminster are also reducing household income in Scotland. It is timely that the Scottish Parliament Equal Opportunities Committee is holding a roundtable session on Tuesday 21st February on ‘Women and Work’ with members of the Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) Women’s Committee and other organizations working with women in Scotland.
