Ulster Bank urged to postpone all branch closures until 2023

 

Ulster Bank will be urged to postpone all branch closures until 2023.

It will appear before the Oireachtas finance committee to explain why it's leaving the Irish market on a phased basis after 160 years.

The organisation announced the move on Friday, in a major blow to its 2,800 staff here.

John O'Connell, from the Financial Services Union, will also appear before the committee today - he wants clarity from Ulster Bank.
