Morgan welcomes creation of 300 jobs at Abtran in Cork

12 April, 2010

Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Enterprise, Trade and Employment Deputy Arthur Morgan has today welcomed the announcement by Abtran to create 300 new jobs in its call centre operation in Cork.

Deputy Morgan said:

“In a county where there are currently nearly 45,000 people on the Live Register, the creation of new employment is vitally important. Abtran currently employ 1,000 people in Ireland and the expansion of employment is critical for the people of County Cork and for the local economy.

“The Government in tandem with Enterprise Ireland should be concentrating now on bringing these types of employment opportunities to every county in Ireland. While job creation in the current climate is always welcome, 300 jobs is nowhere near enough. What this country needs is 430,000 jobs and that is what the Government should be focussed on.” ENDS
