BARROW shipyard workers are set to bag a share of nearly £660,000 in bonuses.
Have your say
Come now Â£150 is not a lot of money. I wonder wahy there has been such a lot of vitriol from your contributors over this issue. I assume that most of the BAE people used this for shopping or a small luxury.
Jealousy over someone getting Â£150 is unbecoming.
are you having a laugh ? Could you Please tell the readers the last contract delivered to time & cost by BAE ? I think you will struggle finding one over your 30 years of being there! Ever wondered why they need contractors ...??
Most of the real work is done by contractors who never receive a penny in bonuses, never mind sickness and holiday pay.

Also my experience of contractors is that they draw jobs out. It's a natural thing, if you finish the job on time and to schedule you'll be out of a job. I don't actually blame you for slowing the job up and muddying the waters of the job. It's the only way you can keep the job.
I do look at BAE however and think why don't you employ locals who have more integrity and a sense of pride when it comes to building submarines? I've been in the yard over 30 years now and can see the disease that is contractors. Please do to try and convince me different unless you have been there longer and can sincerely show you are an honest worker. The ones I've worked for lately aren't that. They are self only and ought to be deeply ashamed of their antics.
