15 September, 2016 - by Cathal Boylan

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has welcomed the announcement that up to fifty-five jobs are to be retained at the Armagh Jobs and Benefits Office.

The Newry and Armagh MLA said:

“I welcomed the decision from the Minister that the jobs at Armagh Jobs and Benefits Office are to be retained.

“The uncertainty over the future of the jobs caused undue stress and worry for the staff.

“Myself and my party colleague Mickey Brady MP met with workers, Social Security Agency officials, Department officials and the Minister over the past number of months to ensure jobs were retained.

“Thankfully that work has paid off and the staff can go back to work now without having to worry about their livelihoods.”
