Neeson says loss of Halifax jobs will hurt our economy

Alliance Enterprise Spokesperson Seán Neeson MLA has expressed deep concern news at news that around 120 jobs could be lost at Halifax’s Mortgage Operation team in Cromac Square near Belfast city centre.

Seán Neeson MLA said: “This is a deeply worrying development for those Halifax workers who might be affected by this announcement. Coming as it does on the day that a report was published suggesting Northern Ireland could face a ‘double-dip’ recession this is even more alarming.

“I am disappointed that it appears some of the work carried out here may be moved elsewhere, as this will have a detrimental impact on our economy. Those affected are in my thoughts at this really tough time. I believe that the Stormont Executive must provide assistance in training for people and act to create new jobs through introducing a green new deal strategy.”
