Economy minister must support aerospace workers – Ennis

Sinn Féin MLA Sinéad Ennis said the Economy Minister must work with the aerospace industry to ensure workers are supported. 

The South Down MLA said:

“Collins Aerospace in Kilkeel have announced 62 additional redundancies by the end of June this year.

“It’s welcome that from today there will be a 30-day consultation period with Management and Trade Union reps to discuss the proposals and how they will affect the Kilkeel staff.

“There will also be health and wellbeing support services available for workers on site.

“The wider aerospace industry continues to suffer badly from Covid with work orders being drastically reduced.

“It’s vital that Economy Minister Diane Dodds works with the Aerospace industry to support and reskill workers and ensure that the appropriate training is in place going forward.

The third and final day of a fantastic Ploughing. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Sinn Féin tent for a chat over the last few day.

Sinn Féin in Government would stand up and ensure a future for our family farmers and deliver a fair deal for rural Ireland.


It was totally irresponsible for the Minister for Health to travel abroad possibly knowing the scandal at Temple Street Children’s Hospital was going to break.

This scandal raises serious questions around transparency, discipline, oversight & clinical governance. @davidcullinane
