Mayor requests meeting with Seagate
25 April 2023
Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council Cllr Sandra Duffy has requested an urgent cross-party meeting with senior management at Seagate to seek clarity on the global pressures facing the company and its impact on the future.
Cllr Duffy said: “There is a need for us all to work together to send a strong message that Derry is open for business and we need to hear clearly from Seagate about its plans.
“Seagate is a major employer in our city and it’s important that we support them in every way possible to protect the vital jobs they provide in the north west and, indeed, to create more good jobs.
“As a Council we are determined to showcase all that the north west has to offer and demonstrate that this region is a great place to do business in. The success of companies like Seagate over many years has demonstrated that and we want to build on that in the future by attracting more investment and creating more employment opportunities.”
