United with Labour was the Scottish Labour Party's campaign for a No vote in the 2014 referendum on Scottish independence. It was launched in May 2013 by Johann Lamont, Anas Sarwar, and Gordon Brown, MP for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath.[1][2] It was intended that the campaign would involve "roadshows across Scotland", with at least one being attended by Ed Miliband.[2] Unlike Labour for Independence, the Labour campaign for a Yes vote, United with Labour did not have a website other than that of the Scottish Labour Party.

Labour also held the chair of cross-party campaign Better Together, with a further 2 senior Labour MSPs sitting on the board.
