Commenting on the news that major Fife employer Tullis Russell has gone into administration, Grahame Smith, STUC General Secretary said:
“This is a major blow for the Fife economy and Scottish manufacturing. Tullis Russell, a largely employee owned firm, has a track record of providing quality employment. It is essential that the Scottish and UK Governments work with management and trade union representatives to try to save the company as a going concern and to provide effective support to the 325 workers made redundant today”.
