Oil and gas workers from West Lothian feeling at risk of 
redundancy have been
 encouraged to visit their local Skills Development Scotland centre.

SDS has organised a Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE) event for oil and gas workers.

Anyone affected should attend to discuss the support available through PACE – the Scottish Government initiative for responding to redundancy situations.

PACE is a key focus of the new Energy Jobs Taskforce that was set up to support jobs in the energy sector.

Donald Lumsden, SDS chairman of PACE for the 
Lothians, said: “PACE makes things a bit simpler for anyone facing redundancy as it brings together all the support you would expect to receive.

“I would encourage all workers who are facing redundancy, or are concerned about the possibility of losing their job, to make the most of the support available.

“Redundancy information and advice is available to 
anyone visiting the SDS centre in Livingston.”

The SDS centre in West Lothian is located at 2 Cairngorm House, Almondvale Boulevard, Livingston, 
Monday 10am-5pm, Tuesday-Friday 9am-5pm.

The call comes as PACE prepares to host an event in Scotland’s oil capital, Aberdeen, following jobs fears as the price of oil has plummeted.
