Dickson saddened by FG Wilson job losses

Alliance East Antrim MLA Stewart Dickson has expressed his sadness at the loss of 160 agency jobs at the Larne engineering manufacturer FG Wilson. It is restructuring its generator sector and is moving some of its production to China.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “This is very sad news that such a large amount of jobs will be lost in Larne. It will also have a knock on effect on secondary companies in the area who benefited from the large workforce at FG Wilson.

“These job losses just show how unstable the global economy can be.

“I will be seeking a meeting with the management of FG Wilson about these job losses and the restructuring of their firm which has resulted in them moving production to China.”
