Statement in respect of job losses at Waterford Stanley


Reacting to the news this morning that Waterford Stanley are to cut their workforce from 57 to 24 later this year, Waterford Chamber CEO Gerald Hurley said: "This is very concerning and a disappointing announcement for Waterford. The recent CSO figures showing unemployment for the region as the highest in the country at 9.4% does not make for light reading and this is an additional blow.


"Waterford Stanley has been a significant employer in the city for many years and a loyal member of Waterford Chamber. We offer every assistance to them at this difficult time. We are calling on the Government and local agencies to step up and make job creation within the region an immediate priority."
