Ó Muilleoir expressed concerns at UTV job loses
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."
