first_imgDonegal North East Fianna Fáil TD Charlie McConalogue is calling on the Government to do everything in its power to protect jobs at Highland Bakery.“It is not acceptable that the State, in looking to collect unpaid revenue, would jeopardise the future viability of a business employing 28 full time staff and 15 delivery workers in Killclug,” said Deputy McConalogue.“At a time when unemployment is at an all time high in Donegal, it is incumbent on the authorities to ensure that there are no further job losses.  There has never been more pressure on small businesses and many are finding it difficult to survive. “Highland Bakery has been a successful business and valued local employer for many years. Now that it is experiencing some difficulties, the State should be reaching out to help it stay afloat instead of compounding these difficulties.“I’m calling on the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Unemployment Richard Bruton to liaise the Revenue Commissioners and Highland Bakery to come to arrangement which would protect all jobs at the company.  Every step possible must be taken to ensure that small enterprises, which are the bedrock for future employment, are supported and encouraged to grow. It is unacceptable that the jobs at Highland Bakery would be at risk as a result of actions taken on behalf of the State,” said Deputy McConalogue. JOBS CAN BE SAVED AT HIGHLAND, SAYS McCONALOGUE was last modified: May 23rd, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:JOBS CAN BE SAVED AT HIGHLANDSAYS McCONALOGUElast_img read more
