New Dungannon jobs welcomed
Sinn Féin MLA Bronwyn McGahan has welcomed the announcement by Linden Foods in Dungannon that it will create 179 new jobs.
Ms. McGahan said,
“This is a timely boost to the confidence of the town of Dungannon in that these new jobs will inject over £2.5m into the local economy in wages alone at a time when unemployment is rising.
“The agri food industry is one of the biggest employers in the North so it is good to see this local food company announcing this large expansion and making a mark ion this sector.
“Linden Foods have established themselves as a first class producer of processed meats and this is no doubt down to the current management and staff who have shown that there is a pool of quality labour available in the area.
“I would also like to acknowledge the role of Invest NI in the creation of these jobs and ask that they maintain a focus in the creation of jobs in the area given the high levels of unemployment.”
