Green MSPs welcome Blindcraft deal

Green MSPs have welcomed the news that the Blindcraft factory in Edinburgh has been saved following the announcement by city councillors that it could move to a three-day week.

Robin Harper MSP said: “We are delighted that Blindcraft jobs have been saved and hope that this agreement will allow them to continue working until such time as the economy recovers.

“The importance of the Craigmillar factory is not simply that it provides fair employment but that it also provides meaning and a sense of self-worth to the lives of people who would otherwise find it difficult to find any work at all.”
