Scottish Government Group

The devolved government for Scotland is responsible for most of the issues of day-to-day concern to the people of Scotland, including: 

  • health
  • education
  • justice
  • rural affairs
  • transport.

The Scottish Government group has been described as Scotland's "mini Whitehall" and has about 3,500 members working in over 80 offices the length and breadth of Scotland.

Our members work in very diverse areas from direct delivery of services to policy development and drafting legislation. 
We are unique in that we are UK civil servants subject to the Westminster Government, but also subject to the Scottish Government at Holyrood. We are very active within the Scottish Sector, and play a leading role in dealing with the issues that affect our members which arise as a consequence of living and working in a devolved Scotland.   
Our key priority as a group is to protect and defend the interests of members to the best of our ability, and our focus at the moment is on campaigning for fair pay increases for all members.
The group has 6 officers and an executive committee of 15, all of which are elected annually. The group executive committee (GEC) meets on a monthly basis and considers reports of negotiations, contributes to policy developement and considers how to take forward group campaigns.
We see this website as an important resource for members and will be developing it further over coming months.
