GMB Scotland has said “everyone is doing everything in their power” to secure new contracts for BiFab staff. The engineering firm operates yards at Arnish near Stornoway and Methil and Burntisland in Fife. Earlier this month, BiFab notified the Scottish government of the potential for redundancies among its workforce. The GMB said the situation for workers at Arnish had reached a “crucial moment” because the contract they are working is coming to an end. The yard has been used for manufacturing parts for an offshore wind farm being constructed in the Moray Firth.
