InvestNI CEO disappointed by news of Bombardier job losses

1 Mins read

Alastair Hamilton, CEO of Invest Northern Ireland has expressed his disappointment at today’s news that Bombardier Inc intends to reduce its workforce in Northern Ireland.

Mr Hamilton said: “Today’s news will be very upsetting to those working for the company, and their families.

“We will work closely with the Department for Employment and Learning to provide whatever support possible to help those that will be affected by the job losses, be that through redeployment into other companies, retraining or exploring the possibility of setting up their own business.

“While we were fully aware that Bombardier intended to make cost reductions across its global business, the news of 7,000 jobs, 1,080 in Northern Ireland, is much greater than anticipated.

“We have listened to the company’s reasoning for this difficult decision and, while it is hard to hear, we understand why it has had to make this choice.

“While Bombardier feels this ‘right-sizing’ is essential for the business market as it stands today, its announcement of a new order of 75 CS300 aircraft by Air Canada is a positive development and I have every confidence that its commitment to the CSeries project will see the company’s presence in Belfast rebuild for the future.”
