Finnie Calls for Urgent Action to Save Bi-Fab Jobs

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Tuesday November 14 2017

Highlands and Islands MSP John Finnie has called for urgent action to save hundreds of jobs potentially under threat at Arnish following Burntisland Farbricators (Bi-Fab) notice of intention to appoint administrators.

Green MSP Finnie said:

“Urgent action is required to save the jobs under threat following the announcement that Bi-Fab is to appoint administrators.

“The threat posed to the Arnish yard is extremely concerning. It is vital that the Scottish Government engages all stakeholders in a constructive process which explores all options to preserve these jobs both in the immediate and into the long term.

“Scotland has huge potential to be a world leader in a just transition toward a low carbon manufacturing future and Bi-Fab have been at the forefront of this move over the last few years.

“Greens will look to work collaboratively – with other parties, trade unions and industry in an effort to achieve a swift and positive resolution to this situation.”
