Trident and Defence Diversification

1. Congress reaffirms its opposition to Trident and resolves to work together with Scottish CND and the Scrap Trident coalition to win a vote against Trident in the UK parliament in 2016.

2. Congress welcomes the work done on defence diversification. It calls on the Scottish Government to establish a Scottish Defence Diversification Agency which is adequately resourced to engage with trade union representatives to implement realistic plans for defence diversification in the event of cancelling Trident and the closure of other defence establishments.
