Union in boycott.
The trade union chief is horrified at the thought of outside whistlers being shipped in as emergency cover for striking domestic officials.
The STUC have no official policy on the refs' industrial action but Smith will stay away if foreign officials cross what is effectively a Scottish picket line.
He said: "I have a ticket for Tannadice and if there is a scab referee in the middle I won't be there.
"People will perhaps see things differently but I doubt I will be the only football fan thinking like that.
"Refs are not in a trade union as such but are workers and should be treated the same as everyone else."
