East Belfast Alliance Representatives Naomi Long MP, Judith Cochrane and Chris Lyttle have expressed concern at news that Red Sky has gone into voluntary administration, following the recent decision to cancel their Housing Executive contract.
Naomi Long MP said: “Red Sky is a significant local employer in East Belfast and we are extremely concerned at the impact the decision to go into administration will have on those currently employed by the company.
Chris Lyttle said: “Whilst the circumstances of the loss of Red Sky’s contract with the Housing Executive remain subject to legal proceedings, this decision could have a massive impact on employees and their families and that is our primary concern.
Judith Cochrane stated: “We recognise that particularly in this difficult economic climate, alternative employment is in scarce supply and many families will now face an uncertain future. We have offered to meet Red Sky again to discuss the developing situation with them.”
