McKay to meet Economy Minister with Reids workers

25 November, 2007


North Antrim Sinn Féin MLA Daithí McKay is to meet with Economy Minister Nigel Dodds today along with workers who have lost their jobs at Reid Transport in Cloughmills. Mr McKay is also putting forward a Private Notice question to be discussed in the Assembly tomorrow.

Mr McKay said:

"I have arranged a meeting with the Economy Minister to give workers the opportunity to discuss with him not only the need to secure payments to the workforce before Christmas but also some of the practices which took place at the company before its closure.

"We raised these concerns with the Employment Minister Reg Empey on Friday and these need to be acted on right away.

"I will be putting forward a private notice question to the Assembly on this matter tomorrow and outlining some of the very shocking concerns that workers have raised with me." ENDS
