Enniskillen job losses a huge blow to local economy - Flanagan

Published: 26 June, 2015


Sinn Féin MLA Phil Flanagan has said the announcement of job losses at Liberty Insurance in Enniskillen is a huge blow to the local economy.

The Fermanagh/South Tyrone MLA said;

"Workers at Liberty Insurance have been extremely loyal during an extremely difficult time when their jobs were under severe threat in the past.

"The move to outsource operations and cut 20 jobs in Enniskillen will cause considerable and understandable concern among the employees.

"The proposed job losses across the rest of the Irish division are equally alarming and represent a huge blow for the staff.

"The employees of Liberty Insurance work to an extremely high standard and deserve better treatment that this.

"I will be seeking an urgent meeting with representatives of both Liberty Mutual and Hughes Insurance to impress upon them the need to retain maximum employment in Enniskillen." ENDS/CRÍOCH
