Nats hit at bank hols plan.
Employment spokeswoman Anne McNair claimed the move could make this Scotland's last traditional New Year holiday period.
Scotland has two New Year bank holiday whereas England and Wales have just one.
McNair said Scottish clearing banks plan to end the January 2 holiday and move the August one from the beginning of the month to the end.
Announcing backing for a campaign by the main banking union BIFU, she said: "Once again it seems Scots families are taking second place to English clearing banks and the London Stock Exchange.
"Making Easter Monday a bank holiday instead of January 2 would make no sense. Demand for banking services is far greater at Easter than at New Year."
