Further job losses a blow for Belfast - Hazzard

26 October, 2017 - by Chris Hazzard


Speaking after reports by Unite that Bombardier is planning to cut another 280 jobs in the North and that more than 200 jobs are under threat at oil field services firm, Schlumberger in Newtownabbey, Sinn Féin MP Chris Hazzard said:

“The Bombardier job losses are a blow at an already challenging time for the company.

“It was hoped the announcement that Airbus would take a majority stake in the C-Series project last week would help ease pressures on the company.

“Both Bombardier and Schlumberger are bellweather companies embroiled in difficult economic times.

“It’s crucial that Invest NI has a strategy to attract more foreign direct investment projects and grow indigenous companies and that full support is given to workers being made redundant.”
