AVX job losses blow to local economy – Archibald

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has said news that the AVX is to cut up to 77 jobs in Coleraine will come as a major blow to workers, their families and the local economy.   

The East Derry MLA and party’s economy spokesperson said:  

“News that up to 77 workers could lose their jobs is terrible for the workers and their families.  

“It also comes as a blow to the wider local economy, particularly when it is already under intense strain as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The AVX management must engage immediately with trade unions and workers’ representatives and keep staff updated on all developments.  

“I would urge them to look into the potential for alternative job roles for these workers before considering redundancies. 

“In the event of redundancies, opportunities for retraining and upskilling should be provided to these workers.”
