Thirty jobs goat Sol us

Au­gust 1983

Bray People - - NEWS -

LAST week’s shock an­nounce­ment of a mas­sive in­crease in Bray’s job­less to­tal has been fol­lowed by more bad news on the lo­cal em­ploy­ment front. It has been learned that about 30 at So­lus Teo - one of the largest and old­est in­dus­trial con­cerns - are to be laid off by the end of this month. The work­ers, who are em­ployed in the pro­duc­tion of tele­phone and plas­tic signs, are mostly mem­bers of the Work­ers Union of Ire­land.

The union’s full time rep­re­sen­ta­tive in Bray could not be con­tacted about the mat­ter this week as he was away on hol­i­days. No com­ment was avail­able from the man­age­ment of So­lus ei­ther.

The job losses at So­lus rep­re­sent an­other ma­jor blow for jobs in Bray, which has been reel­ing from con­tin­u­ous heavy in­creases in the un­em­ploy­ment to­tal over the past two years.

The lat­est fig­ures have shown an in­crease of over four per cent in just one month, the big­gest jump this year. Over the past year the to­tal has gone up by al­most 25 per cent.
