Local MP and MSP show support for Young's workforce

Following last week's announcement by Young's Seafood that it was evaluating options for its Fraserburgh site, local MP Eilidh Whiteford and MSP Stewart Stevenson have visited the factory to show support for staff there.

The local representatives visited the factory on Monday morning and met with a cross-section of the Young's workforce, including trade union representatives. During the meeting, the employees voiced their concerns about the potential exit of the company from Fraserburgh and heard of the efforts that the local MP and MSP are undertaking to keep jobs in the town.

Commenting following the visit, Stewart Stevenson, MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, said:

"It is welcome to meet with staff and have the opportunity to talk with them about their future and what we can do to help, as their local representatives.

"The employees at Young's in Fraserburgh are highly skilled and care passionately about their work. We all agreed to work together to keep jobs in Fraserburgh."

Eilidh Whiteford, MP for Banff & Buchan, added:

"We are determined to keep as many jobs in Fraserburgh as possible, and we continue to work with the company, the local Council and the Scottish Government to try and secure a future for this factory."
