Speaking following urgent talks with Finance and Economy Secretary Derek Mackay, trade unions and the management of Michelin Tyres to discuss the future of the Dundee plant, John Alexander leader of Dundee City Council said: "This is a body blow for every person who currently works at the Michelin Plant, but as a city we have proved time and again that we rally around and stand together when times get tough.
"We are absolutely committed to putting in the effort with the workforce, the decision-makers at Michelin, the Scottish Government and other partners in Dundee and beyond to achieve a positive outcome. We welcome the leadership shown by the Scottish Government in creating an action group and ensuring there is a robust response to this difficult situation.
"The council will be an active participant in the group and help to investigate every possible avenue to ensure that Michelin continues be a part of our economic future."
