19 November, 2015 - by Gerry Kelly

Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has expressed his concerns following the announcement of job losses at an engineering firm in Newtownabbey. 

Mr Kelly said; 

"News that 37 jobs will be lost at engineering firm Schlumberger in Newtownabbey will come as a major blow to the workers involved. 

"I would call on management at Schlumberger to engage with staff and trade unions to ensure that all workers are kept up to date in the coming days and weeks. 

"It is also important that management put in place a programme of retraining and upskilling to ensure the staff involved are able to find alternative employment as soon as possible."
