Position of Mid and East Antrim Council CEO untenable if reports are accurate – McGuigan

Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGuigan has said the CEO of Mid and East Antrim Council’s position is untenable if reports are accurate following her testimony to a Stormont committee yesterday. 

Philip McGuigan said: 

“It has been reported that the CEO of Mid and East Antrim Council, Anne Donaghey, had written to the British government on the advice of the DUP ahead of the decision to remove workers from inspection posts at Larne Port. 

“If this is the case then that would be at odds to her testimony to a Stormont committee. 

“She needs to return to the committee to provide clarity and, if these reports are true, then this damning revelation would make her position untenable. 

“The chief executive’s role is as a public servant, answerable to Council. 

“This appears to have been a partisan decision based on the word of one political party. That is not the role of a chief executive and she can no longer command confidence in her position.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
