Northern Ireland Protocol credited for helping to create 1,000 new jobs

TweetThe protocol, according to the Deputy First Minister, is to thank for Almac’s announcement that it will hire 1,000 people because it has dual market access. In the next three years, the Almac Group, a Craigavon-based pharmaceutical development and production company, plans to hire 1,800 people worldwide, 1,000 of whom will be in Northern Ireland. The development, according to Ms O’Neill, demonstrates the benefits of the protocol’s dual access, which allows Northern Ireland firms to sell without limits in both the UK internal market and the EU single market.

Teachers’ exemption from the Fair Employment Act is ‘outdated,’ according to the Northern Ireland Education Department

TweetAccording to a union, the exemption of teachers in Northern Ireland from fair employment legislation is “outdated” and should be repealed. That exemption has been criticized by a number of MLAs, including former first minister Arlene Foster. The NASUWT, a teachers’ union, is the latest to push for the exception to be repealed.

The removal of the exemption, according to the NASUWT, will “address endemic nepotism and a lack of diversity in the teaching profession.” On Tuesday, the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) convention in Belfast will hear the union’s motion.
