Gallahers workers should be given help to find new jobs - McKay

20 May, 2016


Sinn Féin MLA Daithí McKay has said the workers leaving their jobs at JTI Gallahers should be given every assistance to find replacement jobs. 

The North Antrim MLA said; 

"The loss of these jobs in Ballymena is obviously a significant blow to the local economy. 

"This is an area that has experienced a number of job losses in recent years. 

"JTI Gallahers have given many reasons for these job losses but it is clear they are chasing cheaper wage bills. 

"The staff who are leaving their jobs in Gallahers should be given every assistance in terms of retraining, reskilling and finding new employment."
