Independent Assembly candidate for Newry and Armagh Councillor Gavin Malone has backed Haldane fisher workers as they negotiate for better pay. The Unite the Union represented workers at the Newry based business have demanded a 9% increase in pay to offset the rising cost of living.
Councillor Malone said:
“I fully back the Haldane Fisher workers as they seek better pay in what is a turbulent time for everyone with the cost of living going through the roof.
Times are hard as it is and if fuel, food and bills are going up then wages need to increase also.
I give my full support to both the employees and Unite the Union.”
