Fears for the future at Tyrone Crystal – Gildernew
Sinn Féin Fermanagh and South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew has expressed her solidarity with staff at the Tyrone Crystal plant in Dungannon and has committed herself to doing all that she can to support workers at this uncertain time.
Speaking from Dungannon this morning Ms Gildernew said;
“Obviously this is a difficult and uncertain time for the workers and their families; I spoke to some of the staff last night who are simply shell-shocked at the uncertainty of what is taking place.
As MP for the area my immediate priority is to ensure that all those effected, from management through to workers are protected to the best of our ability and I am seeking an urgent meeting with management and staff on this issue to plot out the next course of action.
Tyrone Crystal is a community business in the heart of Dungannon and we must do all that we can to protect the much needed jobs and tourism potential that derives from it.” CRÍOCH
