Job cuts at NI bus builder

Wrightbus, based in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, is cutting up to 125 staff as a response to the economic slowdown.

The Ballymena bus builder will make up to 35 employees redundant and reduce agency staff by up to 90 workers ‘over a phased period’.

The firm’s owners, Bamford Bus Company, said it would still have 10 times the workforce it had when they bought it out of administration in October 2019.

Wrightbus’s chief executive, Buta Atwal, said the redundancies ‘are a necessary measure’.
