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 2021 Scottish Parliament election, the party came fifth with 12 seats. It merged into the Scottish National Party on 13 November 2021 but was reformed with the merger of the Progressive Workers Party into Labour
