Freight Association urges resolution of dispute

Tags: ,


The British International Freight Association has urged the Unite Union and Forth Ports, the owner of Grangemouth port in Scotland, to meet in order to achieve a swift resolution to the current industrial dispute.
The dispute has seen all shipside activity at the port’s container terminal cease since Tuesday of last week, following the decision by members of the union to withdraw their labour.

The strike is already having a major impact on the general Scottish economy and the specific activities of BIFA members, which are freight forwarders that facilitate the movement of much of Scotland’s visible trade. The current situation is damaging Scotland’s economy by increasing costs and causing major inconvenience to the supply chains of BIFA members’ customers.

BIFA’s members have expressed their view that if necessary the Scottish Government should intervene to facilitate these meetings.
