Sinn Féin welcome new Sainsbury’s jobs for West Belfast

7 May, 2009


Sinn Féin MLA for West Belfast Paul Maskey has welcomed the creation of 100 new jobs in West Belfast by the supermarket Sainsbury's. Speaking today Mr Maskey said: “This is a major development in West Belfast with the Kennedy Centre being extended to provide adequate space for a major investment by Saisnbury’s. “The extension work alone has provided countless construction jobs and now Sainsbury’s are providing an extra boost to the local economy with the creation of 100 jobs for the new supermarket. “On top of this the news that current staff at Curley’s will be retained provides security for those staff members already employed there in economically turbulent times. “In all this is a good news story for the west of the city and is very welcome given the recent high amount of job losses in the area.”
