Longford/Westmeath TD, Deputy Kevin 'Boxer' Moran has expressed his shock and deep concern that up to 170 jobs are to be lost at the Cameron engineering and manufacturing plant in Longford following an announcement of potential job losses at a UK sister company.
"This is deeply disturbing news for the workers and families and the wider community in Longford town,” said Deputy Moran.
"Cameron was established in Longford town in 1978 and has contributed significantly to the growth and prosperity of the town and county over the last 30 years," said Deputy Moran.
He added: "Any news of job losses is extremely serious and will be treated as such by the Government.
"I will be in touch with the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Mary Mitchell O'Connor to ensure the State agencies engage with Cameron engineering management and workers as a matter of urgency."
