Plight of Avondale workers remains in doubt

L-1814 President Chris Burnett stands near the bow section of an LPD ship under construction at the Avondale shipyard in 2009.

Northrop Grumman plans to close shipyard by 2013

AS MEMBERS OF Local 1814 (Bridge City, La.) report for work at the Avondale shipyard each day, they do so with a sense of foreboding. Unless something changes dramatically, Northrop Grumman will shut down Avondale, eliminating about 4,500 jobs by 2013. Nearly 1,000 Boilermakers worked at the shipyard and at the smaller Tallulah shipyard until last fall, when the company began laying off workers. The firm ceased operations at Tallulah in late 2010. By early February 2011, only about 550 L-1814 members remained at Avondale.
