McGuigan appeals for issue of ownership of Wrightbus site be resolved
Sinn Féin MLA Phillip McGuigan has said the issue of ownership over Wrightbus must be resolved in order for a buyer to be found.
The North Antrim MLA said:
“The people of north Antrim were dealt a devastating blow last month when it was announced that Wrightbus had gone into administration.
“There is now a potential buyer for the business which could save hundreds of jobs but once again the ownership of the Wrightbus site has become an issue in the negotiations.
“Sinn Féin would appeal that the issue around the ownership of the site be resolved to enable the buyout to happen and to safeguard the livelihoods of as many workers as possible.
