Kathleen said, "We are delighted that the Provost of Aberdeenshire is hosting this celebration of 150 years of our Trade Union Council.

"Although it is entitled, Aberdeen TUC, our affiliates include trade union branches from across the North East of Scotland, including my own union, Aberdeenshire UNISON.

"As a Trade Union Movement we are proud of our history of fighting for the rights of workers in both the City and Shire.

"The ATUC has had a wonderful anniversary year, which began with a Civic Reception hosted by Aberdeen City. We thank the Provost and Aberdeenshire Council for helping us to bring this special year to a close."
