Concern over 350 jobs at Barrow shipyard
1:56pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
OVER 300 jobs are hanging in the balance at Barrow's shipyard.
A consultation is expected to start this week. The jobs are in BAE Systems’ Weapons Teams which has been hoping for news on an order with the Indian government, which has yet to be finalised.
Barrow MP John Woodcock today expressed his concern. He said: "This is obviously a very worrying time for employees and I know work is going on right down to the wire to encourage the deal with the Indian government that would sustain their jobs.
“The workers on this world-leading capability designed here in Barrow have served the company so well and every effort must be made to keep them in employment."
