Financial Services Union says jobs at risk at Sligo Ulster Bank

A union official claims that Ulster Bank is not only closing branches, it will also be reducing staff in remaining branches.

Gareth Murphy, senior industrial relations officer with the Financial Services Union, says it means that not only will customers have to travel longer distances, there’ll be fewer people to deal with them when they get there.

Ballymote branch in Sligo and Ardara in Donegal will close in September. Raphoe, in Donegal, will close in June.

But Mr Murphy says jobs are also at risk at Ulster Bank in Sligo Town.
