Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Strat­ton Wil­liams

SNP mem­ber for Ruther­glen and Hamil­ton West.

“I have per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing made re­dun­dant and understand what the work­ers must be go­ing through right now.

“The work­force at Tata’s Cly­de­bridge plant is small and close-knit, and all of the work­ers will be feel­ing the ef­fects of the re­dun­dan­cies.”

Ms Fer­rier says she will con­tinue to work with the trade unions and Tata on the task force, and is avail­able to help any­one who re­quires any as­sis­tance.

“My of­fice is ready and wait­ing to as­sist any­one af­fected by th­ese re­dun­dan­cies,” she said.

Labour MSP James Kelly was stunned at the de­vel­op­ment.

“This is dis­ap­point­ing news so close to Christ­mas,” he said.

“It is go­ing to be hard for th­ese work­ers and their fam­i­lies.

“It fur­ther em­pha­sises the need for a proper so­lu­tion in re­la­tion to both plants.

“There has been much talk about an al­ter­na­tive buyer but we need to hear about con­crete plans from the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment so no other work­ers are put in this ter­ri­ble sit­u­a­tion,” added Mr Kelly.
