Sinn Féin - On Your Side

McCartney concerned over future of Derry engineering jobs

12 August, 2015 - by Raymond McCartney


Sinn Féin MLA has expressed concern over reports that jobs are at risk at a Derry engineering firm. 

Mr McCartney said; 

"This announcement of possible redundancies has caused concern and anxiety among the workers at Maydown Precision Engineering. 

"In the current climate any fears of jobs losses is worrying and I would urge the company to do all they can to avoid any redundancies. 

"This is a stressful time for the firms's employees and their families and I would call on management to fully engage with workers and unions in the coming days and weeks. 

"It is important that all workers' rights and entitlements are honoured in this process."

“Sinn Féin will be seeking meetings with both the Company and Union representatives in an effort to clarify the situation."
