The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - BUSINESS - BY TOM EDEN

The gen­eral sec­re­tary of the Scot­tish Trades Union Congress (STUC) has an­nounced he will be step­ping down from the role in May after al­most 15 years in charge.

Gra­hame Smith has led the STUC since be­ing ap­pointed in­terim chief in May 2005.

Yes­ter­day, he said he wanted to de­vote “more time to per­sonal in­ter­ests”, but would con­tinue to cam­paign and stand up for the rights of work­ing peo­ple.

He added: “I could ask no more of my work­ing life than to have had the op­por­tu­nity to sup­port our unions in their ef­forts to im­prove the lives of work­ing peo­ple, their fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties.”
