Welcoming the launch of Neil Findlay MSP's campaign to head Labour in Scotland, Pat Rafferty, leader of Unite Scotland, said: "The choice for leader of Labour in Scotland has never been clearer. It is between genuine change - or more of what has seen voters turn their backs on Labour.
"Neil Findlay's programme is one of substance. Solid commitments on jobs, decent wages, homes and education for our kids - these are what will bring hope back to people and renew faith in Scottish Labour.
"He has his roots firmly planted in our workplaces, our communities. He knows about the struggles ordinary people face because he has been there. He knows about their hopes for a better life because he has them too. He is the man to turn around the failing fortunes of Labour in Scotland and lead our country to a fairer future.
"Unite has no hesitation in saying to members that with Neil Findlay at the head of Scottish Labour, this party is on your side."
