BAE confirms it is slashing 2000 jobs

BAE Systems announce huge job cuts across all sectors (updated)

Following the announcement on Tuesday that 340 jobs in BAE's maritime division are to be cut, GMB, the union for shipbuilders has called on MPs to do more and urged the government to reverse its shipbuilding strategy.

As part of its letter-of-intent (LOI) to acquire 24 Eurofighter Typhoon fighter aircraft, Qatar also requested six Hawk trainers from BAE.

The aircraft is the most important in BAE's portfolio, accounting for almost a third of its air unit's sales previous year.

Those actions are necessary and the right thing to do for our company, but unfortunately include proposed redundancies at a number of operations.

He said the actions at some of its United Kingdom sites will align its workforce capacity "more closely with near-term demand".

She said: 'This is obviously a very worrying time for workers at BAE Systems.

"The company assures us that reductions can be managed on a voluntary basis as far as possible", she told lawmakers.

She said she would now be seeking clarification from BAE Systems and has asked the Scottish Secretary what further action he is taking to protect defence and manufacturing jobs.

'But we will continue to promote our world-leading defence industry across the globe, so companies like BAE Systems can secure contracts for UK-made equipment'.

The decision to reduce workforce comes due to a decline in orders for Typhoon fighter aircraft, according to media sources.

Another 400 jobs will go in Brough, north-east England, where the company makes the Hawk training jet, it said.

BAE is now fulfilling outstanding Typhoon orders from the Royal Air Force and Oman, with the latter - along with Saudi Arabia - also accounting for remaining Hawk orders.

The Unite union's assistant general-secretary, Steve Turner, says the government can "end the uncertainty surrounding the future of thousands of British BAE defence jobs at a stroke by committing to building the next generation fighter jets here in the United Kingdom".
