Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Committee 27 March - 17 April

As Parliament goes into recess at the end of this week, this will be your last EJFW newsletter until 17 April. As always, if the prospect of three weeks without us seems daunting, do hop over to twitter and follow us there. We're hoping to get to 2000 followers...some day...

But before we get to the substance, a word about style. Following some feedback that the newsletter was a bit hard to read, we're trying a new look this week. Better? Worse? Let us know via the usual channels (in this case, email is probably best.)

So, to the business of tomorrow's meeting. The world of Parliamentary committees is often fast-paced, exciting, and - from time to time - changeable. This week is certainly an example of that. We republished our agenda this afternoon, following a decision by the Scottish Government to revoke the statutory instrument Bankruptcy Fees (Scotland) Regulations 2017 (SSI 2017/37). Tomorrow's revised agenda has two panels on the gender pay gap, after which we'll consider the evidence we've heard to date. Coming to give evidence are:

  • Shirley Campbell, Director for People, Scottish Water;
  • Rosie MacRae, Head of Inclusion and Diversity, SSE;
  • Megan Horsburgh, Head of Diversity and Inclusion, Sodexo UK & Ireland;
  • Catriona Mackie, HR Director, Diageo Global Supply, Diageo;

and then:

  • Katy Miller, Head of Human Resources, City of Edinburgh Council, COSLA;
  • Peter Reekie, Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Investments, Scottish Futures Trust;
  • Nicky Page, Head of People Management, Police Scotland;
  • Ian Reid, Management Side Secretary of the NHS Scotland Terms and Conditions Committee;
  • Diane Vincent, Director of People and Organisational Development, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

We start at 9.30am, and the second panel will begin at approximately 10.45am. As always, you can follow live online. After Easter Recess, we're expecting three more sessions on the gender pay gap, finishing with evidence from Scottish Government ministers on 2 May.

Until next month then, we wish you plenty of sunshine - and do get in touch with any questions about any of the Committee's work.
