Ten workers to go at Tata Steel on Friday
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.
