Ministers are determined to improve outcomes for all of Scotland's diverse communities and people, and to remove barriers preventing them from reaching their full potential. These barriers go beyond income inequality to include issues of disadvantage, prejudice and discrimination experienced on grounds of attribute or characteristic. These can affect the outcomes for people specifically in relation to employment and health - closing the gap in these inequalities is an important priority of this Government. The Scottish Government's actions to achieve this include: working together with the STUC and Scottish trade unions towards the development of a more successful Scotland, through promoting equality, excellent public services, sustainable economic development, and valuing the positive contribution that trade unionists make in the workplace.
