McElduff concerned at possible Homebase job losses

Published: 15 December, 2015

Sinn Féin MLA Barry McElduff has expressed concern at news that 39 jobs could be lost in Omagh with the possible closure of the town's Homebase DIY store.

Mr McElduff said;

"News that 39 jobs could be lost in Omagh with the potential closure of the Homebase DIY store have caused a great deal of concern in the town.

"Staff at the store have received a letter telling them they are at risk of redundancy and that the store may close.

"The loss of these jobs would be a significant blow to the Omagh area and the local economy.

"No worker wants to receive news like this but particularly not at this time of year.

"The company are currently in consultation with workers and I would encourage them to explore all options to avoid job losses and to keep staff informed of all developments."
