Arntz Belting company
Sinn Féin MLA Martina Anderson has called on the management of Arntz Belting Company to state the facts in connection with a planning application for housing on its entire site.
Ms Anderson said:
"There is growing uncertainty amongst the workforce on the future of the plant after a planning application for housing on the site appeared in a local paper this week.
"I am calling on the management to clarify the situation immediately as to the future of the plant.
"Workers deserve more respect from their employers and should be told all the facts as to the future of their employment. Only a fortnight ago Reid Transport assured their workforce that their jobs were safe yet they find themselves today unemployed without their entitlements being met.
"I have requested a meeting with the management to discuss these issues and hope to receive clarification on all the matters raised." ENDS
