Aer Lingus job losses - the government cannot and must not stand idly by!

Speaking to the Fingal Independent today the Sinn Féin representative for Swords Conor Kelly has expressed his concerns at the prospect of yet more massive jobs losses for the north county in the wake of cost-cutting plans announced at Aer Lingus.

Mr Kelly said: 'After the loss of 1,200 jobs at SR Techinics early in this year, we now face another 676 jobs to be lost at Aer Lingus.

'North Dublin has suffered greatly over the past year with the closure of SRT, while it must be said, the Government seemed happy to sit idly by and done nothing to save the company or the 1,200 jobs it provided.'

The local Sinn Féin representative said: ' We simply cannot afford a repeat of that Government inaction.

' The key to any recovery is not massive job losses, but rather to keep employment high. A concept that sadly seems to be lost on this Government.'
