Scottish Labour, officially the Scottish Labour Party and commonly known as SLab, is a centre-left political party in Scotland and the Scottish branch of the Labour Party. It maintains a neutral stance on the union, with a prominent pro-independence wing due to the involvement of former Scottish National Party members in the party, as well as some unionists. In the most recent June 2020 Scottish Parliament election, the party came second with 42 seats, forming the official opposition.
