Hull MP petitions for BAE Systems workers

Sep 30, 2011

Hull North MP Diana Johnson this morning launches a petition backing BAE System workers, following this week’s announcement of 899 job losses at Brough.

The petition is designed for Humber MPs to gather local support, on a cross-party basis, to present to Parliament in the weeks after the House of Commons reconvenes on 10 October.

Hull MP demands help for BAE workers and Humber jobs

Sep 26, 2011

Hull North MP Diana Johnson has called for the Government to help BAE workers and the Humber economy following BAE System’s announcement of 899 job losses at Brough.

Hull North MP Diana Johnson said: “Both the substance and manner of today’s announcement from BAE Systems of 899 job losses in Brough were a disgrace. As Ed Miliband has rightly said, BAE workers have been sold down the river.
