This shock announcement is a devastating blow to Bombardier’s workforce and suppliers – Tony Lloyd

Tony Lloyd MP, Labour’s Shadow Northern Ireland Secretary, responding to news that Bombardier is putting its Belfast operation up for sale, said:

“This shock announcement is a devastating blow to Bombardier’s workforce and suppliers.

“The government must now step in and engage with trade unions to ensure the workers at the Belfast site and throughout the supply chain are protected and that assistance is provided to find an appropriate buyer.”
