Amicus commenting on the closure of LG Electronics in Newport

LONDON, ENGLAND--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 18, 2006) -

Cath Speight, Amicus Regional Secretary for Wales, said:

"I am extremely disappointed that the company has decided to end production at this site as these jobs are so important to the local economy.

"This is the second time LG have closed sites from South Wales which is devastating for the people involved and their families who know that the redundancies will take place just before Christmas.

"Again manufacturing in Wales has been set back and our priority now will be to help our members."
