Trident and Jobs:

The case for a Scottish Defence Diversification Agency

This  report from the STUC and Scottish CND draws attention to the shift in the balance of global power from the uni-polar world  to a multi-polar world making Britain’s nuclear weapons system seem increasingly irrelevant, the lack of a credible ‘target’ or military rationale for Britain’s’ nuclear weapons system seem increasingly irrelevant, the lack of a credible ‘target; or military rationale for Britain’s nuclear weapons system and growing support from the nations and peoples of the world for a global ban on these weapons. 

In particular this study highlights

  • Effect of austerity on the defence budget
  • Case studies form the US about employment after closure of large military installations
  • Detailed breakdown of potential transfer of skills
  • Case for a Scottish defence diversification agency to develop realistic plans for employment after the removal of Trident.
