Cammell Laird: Pressure is on to save jobs
While workers at Cammell Laird shipyard should be celebrating the awarding of £619M Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA) contracts to the company unfortunately they have found themselves receiving a HR1 proposing 291 redundancies, with the first dismissal taking place just weeks before Christmas.

Earlier this year workers were encouraged by management to accept a five year pay deal, as it would secure jobs over that period.

Unite and GMB unions, who represent the majority of workers have launched a campaign “Turning the tide on Casualisation” as they believe this is merely an attempt to dismiss directly employed workers and replace them with insecure agency labour at a later date, to maximise profits.

On Friday 9 November nearly 80 per cent of Unite members backed strike action in a ballot over job fears.

Unite & GMB are calling on the UK government and the Ministry of Defence to sit down with Cammell Laird so that work can be organised in a way to avoid compulsory redundancies and secure jobs at the shipyard for years to come.
