Titanic Birthplace Bailout

October 2, 2019

The threatened closure of the Harland & Wolff shipyard has been extinguished, with the purchase from administration by InfraStrata, a London based energy infrastructure company for the sum of £6m pounds.   Seventy nine will keep their jobs with the promise of an increased workforce of several hundred over the next five years.

The Trade unions Unite  and GMB hailed the role of the workforce in securing the yard’s future, who yesterday changed the wording of the banner hanging over the H & W yard  gates from ‘Save our Shipyard’ to ‘We saved Our Shipyard’

Bon Voyage.
