“BAE Systems can confirm that it has presented an alternative solution to ending manufacturing at Brough to its employees and their representative.
The solution, which has been made viable with the Hawk order from KSA, will mitigate 248 potential job losses at the site and guarantee a role for 30 of the site’s apprentices upon completion of their apprenticeship. A further 73 roles available for Brough employees who wish to transfer across to the Samlesbury and Warton sites.
From the outset of consultations, the Company has been committed to, as far as possible, exploring all opportunities to avoid and mitigate the potential job losses. Through that commitment, working together with the Trade Union and Executive Representatives and a fresh approach to the Hawk supply chain, this solution has been developed. The Company remains committed to pursuing mitigation opportunities for those roles not yet mitigated.
The solution will see Brough undertake work associated with Hawk detail manufacturing and sub-assemblies.”
