Unite the union has today (Wednesday 6 March) pledged to assist workers at the Grangemouth based road haulage company Duncan Adams following the announcement that it has gone into administration.

Around 110 workers at Duncan Adams are facing unemployment. Duncan Adams is one of the largest privately-owned transport and distribution companies in Scotland. Unite will be providing employment and legal advice by holding a drop-in meeting between 18:00-21:00 on Sunday 10 March at the Leapark Hotel on Bo’ness Road Grangemouth. All workers whether members or non-members are invited to attend.

Mark Lyon, Unite regional industrial officer, said: The announcement by Duncan Adams is desperately sad news. The company has been based in Grangemouth for generations. However, Unite pledges to do all we can to assist the workers. We are encouraging every worker affected by the administration announcement to attend the drop-in session arranged. We will be ensuring that all workers whether they are members or not are fully aware of their rights, and that those who may have a legal case are assisted in completing their paperwork.”
