Gary Middleton MLA said “I received communication this morning that Firstsource in Londonderry had started a redundancy consultation process today. This has created uncertainty and worry amongst staff. This afternoon I met with senior management of Firstsource to receive further information and clarity.

Due to a decision taken by Sky, 200 employees at the Springtown site, 100 employees in Belfast and 200 homeworkers are affected and undergoing the redundancy consultation process.

I have been informed that the consultation process will last 3 months and that the priority will be to look at options to safeguard the jobs, support employees and source additional contracts.

I have stressed to Firstsource management that the consultation process must be fair and transparent and as an elected representative I need to fully understand the impact that this will have on my constituents.

The additional 370 employees at the Springtown site remain unaffected. I will continue to keep in contact with Firstsource over the coming days and weeks”
