“Fears of job losses are always concerning but when it comes immediately following a recent takeover by new investors

there is a sense of increased nervousness.

“Sinn Féin has secured a meeting with management at MPE tomorrow (Thursday) morning in an effort to clarify the situation. We will also be seeking to meet with Union representatives.

“We have worked closely and positively with the previous owners and would wish to maintain that relationship with Schivo.

“At all times the protection of jobs and employee security must be our priority and I hope that we can find a way to dispel the fears created by the the letters which the Union says were issued to employees.”CRÍOCH/END
