6 October, 2016 - by Máirtín Ó Muilleoir


Sinn Féin MLA for south Belfast Máirtín Ó Muilleoir has expressed concern at the news that up to 40 jobs are to go at UTV. 

Speaking today Mr Ó Muilleoir said:

"The news that over 40 jobs in UTV are at risk is a blow to the local economy and indeed the independence of the local media sector. 

"UTV has been at the heart of south Belfast for decades. A reduction of 25% of the current workforce will undoubtedly put a strain on output and the staff who remain. 

"ITV should recognise this and offer more opportunities for realising and retraining for those staff at risk."
