Harland and Wolff workers lock themselves in to protest shipyard's sale

Mon 29th July, 2019 4:32pm
DUBLIN, July 29 (Reuters) - Workers at Belfast shipyard
Harland and Wolff protesting the planned sale of the business
have locked themselves in and will not leave until a solution is
found that keeps the shipyard open, a union supporting the
workers said on Monday.
    The Unite union did not say how many workers were locked in.
The yard, famous for having built the ill-fated Titanic ocean
liner in the early 20th century, employs around 130 people,
specialising in energy and marine engineering projects. 
    The business is up for sale amid serious financial problems
at its Norwegian parent Dolphin Drilling, which filed for
bankruptcy in June.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL8N23X25Z
    "Prime Minister Boris Johnson will this week make his first
visit to Northern Ireland as PM, and Unite is again calling on
his government to nationalise Harland and Wolff and cooperate
with the workers to chart a way forward for the yard," said
Unite's Regional Coordinating Officer Susan Fitzgerald.
    The workers strung a banner from one of the shipyard's
cranes with a call to "Save our Shipyard", according to a blog
posted on the union's website.
