On Thursday, my Scottish Labour colleagues and I were very proud to welcome the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Iron Ship Builders, Blacksmiths, Forgers and Helpers (IBB) to the Scottish Parliament. One of the oldest trade unions in North America, the IBB represent over 50,000 skilled craftspeople across Canada and the US.

Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar and MSPs Claire Baker, Carol Mochan and Martin Whitfield joined me as we discussed COP26 and how workers can unite globally to push a transformative agenda.
