Responding to the news that the former BiFab yards at Methil and Arnish, STUC General Secretary Roz Foyer said:
“We welcome the statement from Interstrata plc that it has purchased BiFab from administration and will take over the yards at Methil in Fife and Arnish in the Western Isles. We are also pleased that the company has referred to the future of renewables in Scotland and welcome that the Interstrata has a positive engagement with trade unions.
“We will continue to press for a solution for the Burntisland yard which is not included in this deal.
“This is just the start of our battle for a plan for jobs in manufacturing and renewables in Scotland”
