Sinn Féin MP for Newry Armagh Conor Murphy raised concerns following the loss of what he described as ‘a major contract’ at the Newry-based Call Centre. Speaking to Newry Times, Murphy said, “Sinn Féin was contacted yesterday evening by a staff member of Teleperformance who was extremely concerned following a briefing to all staff members indicating that a Samsung contract had been lost. “I have contacted Invest NI this morning on the matter and they have said that Teleperformance plan to redistribute these 200 staff to other pending contacts. “I am aware that the staff affected will have concerns and I will continue to work with Invest NI to ensure that these jobs are retained in Newry.” Also commenting on the news, Newry Assembly Member Mickey Brady added, “While it is positive that Teleperformance have given assurances that these jobs are not in jeopardy I can understand the fears of staff. “I hope that these are allayed in the near future through redeployment to other contracts.”
