Broch Councillors Comment on Young's Jobs Announcement

>> 28 July 2015

Commenting on the news that Young's are considering a new preferred option for the future of the company which could see the fish processor retaining a presence in Fraserburgh, local SNP Councillor Brian Topping said:

“While the prospect of retaining 250 jobs on site is obviously welcome, job losses on this scale will still represent a big hit to the Fraserburgh economy. However, if the factory remains, then so does the potential for future growth and with it, a greater number of jobs again in future.

“Young's is a very valuable employer in Fraserburgh and I know that the Scottish Government, Aberdeenshire Council and the various agencies are doing all that they can to try and secure the future of the factory, as well as to assist all those who face losing their jobs in finding new employment.”

Fellow SNP Fraserburgh & District Councillor Charles Buchan added:

“The response to the news of the planned closure by government agencies was very swift, and I'm certain that this response and the commitment which it showed to Fraserburgh and the industry has played a big part in persuading Young's to consider alternatives to closure.

“Although no decision has yet been taken, this news of a possible rethink offers a glimmer of hope that Young's - and its employees - can see a viable future for the company in Fraserburgh.”
