Leader of the Welsh Conservatives and South Wales Central AM, Andrew RT Davies, said:


“These proposals are worrying, particularly with a  view to the firm’s long term future in the Vale.


“Just last year the operation received a boost when it was chosen to work on the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, so this news does come as something of a surprise.


“Whilst reports suggest that these are going to be voluntary redundancies, there is some concern among staff that this could lead to compulsory job cuts if the numbers are insufficient.”

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
