11 September, 2012 - by Seán Lynch

Sinn Féin MLA Sean Lynch has questioned Minister of Enterprise Trade and Investment Arlene Foster has not contacted the Revenue Commission to help save the jobs at Target.

Mr. Lynch said.

“Since Target has stopped trading I have been calling for the Minister to intervene to save the jobs in Fermanagh.  I was disappointed to hear in a reply to a question that she has not contacted the Revenue Commission in Dublin who has been dealing with the issue. 

“I am encouraged that Masterlink Logistics have reached provisional agreement to acquire part of the company.  I am hoping that Masterlink Logistics can save as many jobs as possible.

“In the meanwhile Sinn Féin has organised a day in Newtownbutler Community hall on the 14th September between 10am and 2pm in which the Social Security Agency and Citizen Advice Bureau will be available to advice workers threatened with redundancy.”
