Job losses are devastating blow to East Belfast

On hearing that Bomardier is to make around 20% of its workforce redundant, Green Party Councillor for East Belfast Ross Brown said,

“This news is a devastating blow for Northern Ireland and east Belfast in particular.

“My thoughts are with the staff and their family at this stressful time.

“Immediate action is required by the government to assist and ensure that those who have been made redundant secure alternative employment.

“This is a highly skilled workforce which is facing redundancy through no fault of their own. The emphasis should be on retaining these skills in Northern Ireland.”
