A united front against job losses being pushed on Wrexham is vital in making the Government think again.
That is why I’ve called on the Tory/ Independent group on Wrexham Council to make clear their view on proposals to take hundreds of jobs away from the town. Under the proposals put forward by Conservative Ministers, the town’s tax office will be close and moved to Cardiff.
I’ve opposed the proposals since they were first uncovered and am working with a cross-party group of MPs in Parliament to try to halt them. While the fight to keep jobs in Wrexham has received support from a wide range of local people, the ruling council group have yet to make their position clear.
I’ve written to the council to ask the current ruling executive to join the fight to keep jobs in the town.
There are more than 300 jobs at stake here – plus, of course, a Government investment into our town and a prime Wrexham site.
Wrexham people know that these jobs are important and they expect local politicians to fight for them. That’s why I’ve met with staff and unions from the site and taken their concerns directly to Ministers.
We need a united front on this issue to help keep up the pressure on the Government. Now that council elections are out of the way and the council term has restarted, I am calling on Wrexham Council’s Tory/ Independent executive to make clear their views and to join the fight to save these jobs.
