The news that Pladis has outrightly rejected the substantial and comprehensive counter-proposal put forward by the Action Group, which was formed by the Scottish Government and Glasgow City Council, is bitterly disappointing and a hammer blow for the East end.
I gave the company the benefit of the doubt when it said it would engage meaningfully with the process however its actions over the past few months have shown that it had little intention of acting in good faith.
The swift dismissal of this counter-proposal and the lack of engagement with the Action Group tells its own story about Pladis' intentions as it relentlessly presses ahead with its abandonment of Scotland, despite almost two centuries of shared history.
No stone has been left unturned as we've all fought to save almost 500 local jobs and we will continue to do all we can to secure a future for the site.
