GMB Trade Union - Harland and Wolff closure reports 'Tory Government warfare'

GMB Union has responded to reports about the potential closure of the Harland and Wolff.

Matt Roberts, GMB National Officer, said:

"GMB members are concerned at reports regarding Harland & Wolff.

“The employer says their application for a UKEF Export Development Guarantee has not been rejected and the process is ongoing.

“Instead of inter-departmental warfare in the Tory government spilling out and scaring workers, we need unequivocal joined-up support for our shipbuilding industry.

“All the promise of UK workshare on the FSS order must be maintained in full and ideally increased.

“We will not stand by and accept any move to send further work out of the UK on this order."
