Sinn Féin MLA Maeve McLaughlin has expressed concern that 48 jobs could be lost at Invista in Maydown.

The Foyle MLA said: “News that Invista is seeking 48 redundancies at its plant in Maydown is very worrying. This will undoubtedly come as a shock to the employees involved and their families, particularly in the run-up to Christmas. This announcement is a blow to the local economy in the North West.”

She asked management to keep workers up to speed.

She said: “I would call on management at the company to work with staff and trade unions to keep employees up to date during this difficult time. They should also make sure that retraining and upskilling opportunities are put in place for the workers involved to help them secure alternative employment.”
