    EU workforce is ‘essential’ for Scotland’s economy

    https://fiskerforum.com/eu-workforce...lands-economy/


    Around 4500 people from other EU countries are employed in the Scottish fishing industry

    Continued opportunities for EU citizens to live and work in Scotland are essential to rural and coastal Scotland’s continued success and sustainability, Rural Economy Secretary Fergus Ewing has said, highlighting that approximately 5% of Scotland’s workforce is made up of EU migrants.

    He said that Scotland’s rural economy in particular relies on people from all parts of the EU, with up to 10,000 EU citizens employed in the food and drink sector, up to 10,000 non-UK seasonal migrant workers employed in the soft fruit and vegetable sector and more than 4500 EU citizens working in the Scottish fishing industry.
    In addition, Food Standards Scotland reports that 95% of official veterinarians are EU citizens
    Scotland’s First Minister has made a commitment to EU citizens living here that they will be supported to remain in Scotland during and beyond the uncertainty associated with an EU exit.


    Scotland’s Rural Economy Secretary Fergus Ewing has highlighted that approximately 5% of Scotland’s workforce is made up of EU migrants

    ‘This Government values the contribution EU citizens make to our economy and society, and we want people who are here already to know they will be supported to stay in Scotland. It is also important for people thinking of coming to Scotland to work, even for a season, that we are open for business and that you will be welcomed warmly,’ Fergus Ewing said during a recent visit to Pittenweem harbour, where he highlighted the importance of retaining freedom of movement for EU workers.“
    ‘With EU citizens already making up 5.2% of our workforce – many of whom have chosen to make their lives here – it is clear that any restrictions on movement and access to EU workers would have a significant detrimental impact on rural and coastal Scotland. This could potentially lead to labour and skills shortages and a possible reduction in domestic produce in favour of imports. For example, 58% of our fish processing labour workforce comes from the EU, without which there is a real risk to the future success and sustainability of the rural and coastal economy and communities,’ he said.
    ‘Our message to people is therefore clear: you are welcome here, you contribute to this country’s diversity and prosperity, and we will do everything we can to help you stay in Scotland.’

    FORMER GRIMSBY SKIPPER BIDS TO GIVE UK FISHERMEN A VOICE IN EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT

    The well-known and highly respected ex-skipper John Hancock, has launched his MEP bid
    .
    Declaring a mandate to be “a genuine voice for Britain’s forgotten fishermen in Europe”, John Hancock, who was forced from the industry by EU over-regulation, intends to stand for UKIP (Yorkshire & North Lincolnshire) at the forthcoming European Elections.
    .
    John, who went on to run a successful fish sales business, pubs and a high class seafood restaurant after his fishing career prematurely ended, says that fishing communities up and down the land voted for Brexit but have “again been usurped by an establishment that has nothing but disdain for the normal working man”.
    .
    “So, as much as I think the U.K. should be out of the EU already by now, and with no need for MEPs, I have put myself forward to represent coastal communities in the lion’s den of the European Parliament,” he said, adding that having attended the Parliament in Brussels, he has seen that few of the people dreaming up the red tape and making the rules that cripple many small-scale fisheries, understand anything about the industry – “this is borne out when it comes to putting their crazy rules into practice”.
    .
    .
    Fight for our industry
    .
    “I want to go into parliament, take my place on the fisheries committee, and show the know-nothing politicians that there are people who will fight for the British fishing industry from a position of first-hand experience; deep professional knowledge, and with an unbridled passion.
    .
    “The one thing the MEPs - and for that matter, the EU in general - knows all too well, is that Britain gets a raw deal from the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) – a regime which has consistently been vastly weighted in favour of our continental colleagues, and the EU is terrified that they will lose access to our rich waters during the Brexit process,” John said, adding that this confirms what UKIP has been saying for many years, that given a chance, the British fishing industry has great potential and that coastal communities will be the greatest beneficiaries of a rejuvenated industry from the trickle-down effect of increased landing and processing.
    .
    “It is estimated that the UK fishing industry is worth in excess of £6.3billion and I for one am determined to make sure that coastal communities can exploit the opportunities that should be rightfully theirs when we leave the CFP once and for all,” he concluded.

    When May’s man in charge of negotiating Britain’s exit from EU asks EU Parliament’s chief negotiator if he can have Belgian nationality because he doesn’t want to return to UK after Brexit, she clearly chose the wrong person to negotiate on our behalf.
