Finnie Calls for “Urgent Action” to Save Bi-Fab Jobs

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.”
