MIKE HEDGES AM ASKS WELSH GOVERNMENT TO SUPPORT DAWNUS WORKERS AFFECTED BY COLLAPSE OF COMPANY.
Swansea East AM has spoken to Welsh Government Minister Ken Skates this morning to ask for assistance for employees facing redundancy after the construction giant Dawnus went into administration.
Speaking from the Assembly, Swansea East AM Mike Hedges Said …. ‘This is bad news for the company and my constituents who work there. It is the second large employer in the Enterprise Park to announce closure and redundancy in recent months and losing two big companies is quite a blow to the local economy; these types of closures also have knock on effects to local suppliers and sub-contractors. I have spoken to Ken Skates, Minister for the Economy and Infrastructure and asked that the same support be available for Dawnus workers as has been made available for Virgin Media employees. I have also spoken to Cllr Rob Stewart, leader of Swansea Council and we are agreed that support should be provided to the employees at the firm who now face uncertain times.’
