Over 40,000 jobs will be lost in the next two years from British shipyards unless the Government takes action. Working together we can save these jobs and the communities they support.


There is a crisis growing in Britain’s shipbuilding industry.

British shipbuilders, working together in every shipyard in the country, have completed work on two of the most advanced aircraft carriers in the world.

As the project comes to an end there will be a two-year gap before the next naval vessels are to be built leaving 40,000 direct and supply jobs under threat.

The Government has said that it wants to level up the economy and invest in manufacturing to get the economy going again.

But the government wants to put £1.5 billion worth of contracts, to build the Fleet Solid Support (FSS) supply ships needed to keep the aircraft carriers at sea, out to international competition.

We think these ships should be built at British shipyards with the budget pumped into our regional economies to support our communities, who will pay tax and spend money in their local shops, to keep the national economy going.

So, if you support our proud shipbuilding heritage and want to keep those skills and jobs in the UK then you can add your voice to our campaign by clicking on the link to send a strong message to the Secretary of State for Defence.
