I believe that they said it would effect 7000 other contractors with the job losses at BAE Systems.Yambo wrote:I moved to Preston after leaving the army just as they were closing the Strand Road site, putting 4000 people out of work. Sad to see they are cutting even more jobs.
However, my son got and completed an apprenticeship with BAe but wasn't happy going to the same place doing the same thing all the time and he now does contract work. He'll likely have a bit more competition for contract work soon.
I have to keep my head up and keep plugging on though.I will probably not get moved or made redundant for atleast 3 months.(Normally a 90 day consultancy period with the unions.)
