Dunlop says further Patton jobs losses is a devastation blow for the area

Alliance Ballymena Councillor Jayne Dunlop has said that the extra 54 workers who will be made redundant at Patton Construction firm will be a further devastating blow the local area. 190 jobs have already been lost at the firm earlier this month.

Cllr Jayne Dunlop said: “These further job losses will be another devastating blow to the local economy.

“It is a very sad time for all involved in this company. It is having a knock on effect on shops and businesses in the area as I know some people have cancelled large orders as they are uncertain of their economic future.

“I hope that the Executive will do all that is possible to help Patton as well as the construction sector in general which is facing a difficult time.”
