STUC research on the North East economy – please give your views

The Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) is conducting research on the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire economies and specifically the impact of austerity and oil and gas fluctuations on those living and working in the area.

Sarah Collins, STUC policy officer, is keen to speak to union members and citizens living in the area as part of this research.

Focus groups will take place the week of 8th July. If anyone would like to take part in the focus groups being held, or be interviewed as part of this research, please email Sarah on

If you are unable to take part in the focus group, please fill in this survey (which can be anonymous)

The STUC wants to hear your views!

We are currently particularly missing input from the following – migrant workers, young workers, unemployed; and in sectors of energy, care, distribution, tech and digital, and hospitality – but welcome submissions from across the whole of Aberdeen(shire) society. If you are living and/or working in the north east, we want to hear from you!
