Independent News, the company which owns and prints the Belfast Telegraph, has transferred some of its production from Belfast to it’s Newry plant, at the cost of 24 jobs in the Belfast area.

The company is downsizing it’s workforce in Northern Ireland from 175 to 151. Deputy chief executive for Independent News, Richard McClean spoke of the transfer, “We deeply regret the loss of printing jobs in Belfast but the decision means we are securing the future of our business and strengthening our competitiveness. We aim to implement the job losses voluntarily with enhanced severance terms on offer.”

From mid-March this year the plant in Newry will print all weekday editions of the Belfast Telegraph.
