Maskey disappointed at west Belfast jobs threat
Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has expressed disappointed that 200 jobs are under threat at Ageas Retail (RIAS) in west Belfast.
Mr Maskey said;
“I was extremely disappointed that Ageas Retail have announced a 90-day consultation on the future of 200 jobs at its West Belfast site.
"This decision has come out of the blue to staff who are understandably shocked. Some of them left today in tears concerned about their future.
“I will be engaging with Ageas Retail throughout that consultation period to ensure everything possible is done in order to find alternative employment for those involved.
“I have been in contact with Invest NI today and plan to meet them tomorrow morning in order to discuss this issue.
“I have also spoken today with employees and the Communication Union and will be meeting them again tomorrow and throughout the consultation period."
