grocery department at a west Belfast branch of Dunnes Stores due to adverse trading conditions It is understood the company informed staff that the Park Centre food hall is at risk of closure on 4th November Over the last year the firm has closed three Northern Ireland stores at Antrim Ballymoney and Connswater Sinn Féin MP for west Belfast has stated that the announcement by Dunnes Stores is a blow to the workers and the economy Mr Maskey said there were fears over the past number of days that such an announcement would be made I am calling on Dunnes Stores management to meet with me in the very immediate future in the interest of protecting the workers rights and ensuring adequate arrangements are put in place surrounding the proposed redundancies Unite Regional Officer Sean Smyth this job loss announcement is a severe setback for an area which is classified as highly disadvantaged under all deprivation measures Those who face redundancy include full time and part time workers from every background including students added Mr Smyth Even at this late stage we call on management to engage positively with us on their proposal with a view to mitigation and securing the best possible outcome for those affected Mr Smyth concluded Michelin tyre factory in Co Antrim to close in 2018 with loss of over 800 jobs Michelin Tyre plc announced the running down of their last factory in the island of Ireland on 3rd November as part of investment and restructuring The Ballymena factory in Co Antrim which currently employs 860 people will close altogether in mid 2018 The company said the proposal to run down the truck tyre factory in Ballymena has been made in light of the significant downturn in demand for truck tyres in Europe since the financial crisis of 2007 which has seen the market decrease by over 5 million tyres The company added that the reduced market has been made even more challenging by the huge influx of tyres made in Asia which have doubled in the last few years and increased competition As a result there is a strong need to reduce overcapacity and to concentrate Michelin truck tyre production in larger more competitive sites Despite great efforts and progress being made in previous years other European plants are still more competitive than Ballymena Michelin Plc The Ballymena factory produced its first tyre on 3 December 1969 and employed over 1 000 people on a site that covers 45 hectares 112 acres The factory produced bus and truck tyres with more than 70 of its total production capacity being exported chiefly to North America A small percentage of production was supplied to United Kingdom vehicle manufacturers and replacement markets On 3rd November Michelin said in 2015 the tyre building machines at Ballymena are not capable of making the high tech tyres of the future and the amount of investment required to upgrade the plant is prohibitive particularly at a time when that capacity is not required Michelin Ballymena Employees Unite the Union responded to the news by stating that in addition to the eight hundred and sixty workers who are directly employed by Michelin on the site there are approximately five hundred contractors and many more in the wider economy who now face the threat of redundancy as a result of this announcement These were highly paid secure jobs reflecting the progressive employment practices of Michelin and their loss will devastate the retail and services economy in this region Davy Thompson Unite Michelin said that an employee consultation process will begin immediately regarding the run down proposal and that they are committed to supporting those employees during consultation and in the forthcoming months Michelin appreciates the impact these proposals may have on the employees and local community and commits to support every employee throughout the process In the coming weeks we will meet every employee individually to discuss the proposal and the assistance the employee may need Support will include enhanced redundancy payments training and advice to find new employment quickly Employees prepared to relocate will be offered a job in UK or European plants with relocation support In addition Michelin Development which has helped create more than 400 jobs in County Antrim in the last seven years is prepared to release more than 5 million to help company start ups fund expansion at existing businesses and supply investment to attract new businesses to Ballymena Michelin Tyre Plc The company also announced investments of 65 million at its Dundee and Stoke on Trent sites which will lead to the creation of a total of more than 100 new jobs in those areas Stormont Employment and Learning Minister Dr Stephen Farry reported that his Department will engage and work proactively with management to offer redundancy clinics to the company and their employees The Redundancy Advice Service works in partnership with a range of agencies including the Further Education Colleges and HMRC to provide advice on alternative job opportunities and access to training courses and a range of other issues such as benefits and taxation DEL added that employees may also contact the Department for Employment and Learning directly to take up the support available by contacting their local Jobs and Benefits Office or JobCentre
