GDANSK SHIPYARD ASSETS TO BE LEASED
Enter holding firm (Poland and Laman Poland) with others
Seven Gdansk Shipyard employees suspended their 10-day hunger
strike on 6 Dec. after receiving assurances the Polish shipyard
yard may be saved.
A letter of intent has been signed between Poland and Laman Poland,
a Norweigan-Polish joint venture, under which Laman Poland will
lease the assets of Gdansk Shipyard. Poland reportedly plans to
form a holding company next year that will takeover Gdansk Shipyard.
Shipyards in Szczecin and Gdynia are to be joined in the company
with a steel mill in Czestochowa and a ship engine plant in Poznan.
The 150 employees staging a sit-in at the local government offices
agreed to end their protest.
