The cuts come as work runs out at the shipbuilder’s Birkenhead Yard and the receivers, who were called into the company in April, continue their search for potential buyers.
A statement from PricewaterhouseCoopers said: ‘Discussions are ongoing with interested parties but the receivers have no further announcement to make in this respect at present.’
Industry insiders have indicated that potential bidders could be waiting for the receivers to give notice to all the group’s staff and close down the yards before they make knock-down offers without any redundancy liabilities.
Of the workforce, which once numbered over 2,000, 80 staff remain at the Birkenhead Yard and 200 in technical services in Merseyside. Two hundred staff remain at Tyneside and 50 at DG Electrical, with 12 at Teeside.Almost 300 workers remained at Birkenhead, but the receivers are reviewing labour requirements at the yard, and at Cammell’s other locations, on a daily basis.
