‘Staff hit twice as Bombardier expedite redundancies’ – Bradley

bombardierSDLP Economy Spokesperson Sinead Bradley MLA has expressed her disappointment that Bombardier have decided to bring forward job cuts originally planned over the next two years.

The 1080 redundancies will now be enforced within the next few months.

She said, “Bombardier have not managed this delicate situation with adequate planning or consideration and as usual it’s ordinary staff being shown the short end of the stick.

“This sudden change of plans means that staff has been hit twice. Bad enough that they had to deal with losing their jobs, today they’re being told that any time they had to find new employment has also been cruelly snatched away.

“The treatment of staff here has been shoddy. The rapidly deteriorating situation for Bombardier staff is a microcosm of the state of our manufacturing sector in general.
