DEVRO JOB LOSSES

I am absolutely devastated of this morning’s news that Devro in Bellshill will close down with 90 job losses. While not in my constituency, I’d urge any constituents who are employees at the factory to get in touch if they need assistance.

Devro have said they will try to ensure a good transition by advertising internal vacancies, co-ordinating with other local employers to identify external vacancies and engagement with the Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE) programme run by Skills Development Scotland.
