Trade union the GMB is concerned over the loss of offshore wind contracts and manufacturing jobs.
GMB Scotland Organiser Hazel Nolan said:
“Billions of pounds in manufacturing contracts and tens of thousands of jobs from Scotland’s offshore wind sector were lost to international competitors in 2019.
“Politicians of all parties spent last year preaching to people about ‘green jobs revolutions’ and ‘green new deals’, meanwhile the jobs of the future were sailing to Spain, Indonesia and the UAE.
“Workers and communities in places like Fife and Lewis are sick and tired of hearing about ‘jam tomorrow’, especially when redundancy notices are being handed out in the here and now.
“We need to know when the eight turbine jackets promised to BiFab from the NnG contracts will be delivered and if Scotland is going to get any contracts at all from the Seagreen project, which looks like it will be built in the Far East.
“This morning UK and Scottish Ministers will be sitting round the table with industry majors and our message to both will be blunt: This is a scandal and it has to stop.”
