HHI asks 5,000 workers to take unpaid leave

 

South Korean shipbuilder admits it does not have enough orders to keep its workforcebusy.

 

by Nick Roumpis

 

Workers at Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) have been asked to take unpaid leave as the shipyard does not have enough vessels on its orderbook.

 

The world’s largest shipbuilder said today it has entered into discussions with union leaders to help persuade 30% of its 17,000-strong workforce to take time off without getting paid, the Korea Times report.

 

HHI cannot force employees to take leave so each individual has to agree to it,beginning in September.

 

The company booked a profit of KRW 69.2bn ($62m) in the three months to the end of June, down from KRW 137.5bn a year earlier.

 

Analysts have predicted that better times await South Korean shipbuilders as order activity has shown signs of recovery.

 

HHI struck a reported $600m deal with Vitol for the construction of up to eight very large gas carriers (VLGCs).

 

It was also tipped to win a mammoth order for ultra-large containerships from CMACGM, but it appears that its Chinese rivals have won this race.

 

An HHI official told the Korea Times: “We have about 30 ships to work on in the second half of 2017.

 

“So about 5,000 workers have become idle.”

 

Normally, HHI works on more than 40 projects over the six-month period.

 

According to latest figures, HHI’s backlog consists of 85 ships, down from 110 a year ago.

 

And despite winning significant orders, such as the one from Vitol, it seems that it is not enough to keep all workers busy.

 

According to the same report, HHI may have to place more workers on temporary leave in 2018 if the industry downturn continues.

现代重工要求5000名工人休无薪假

 

韩国造船商承认,没有足够的订单。

 

因没有足够订单,现代重工要求船厂工人休无薪假。

 

据《韩国时报》报道,全球最大的造船商今天表示,与工会领导人进行了讨论,要求其17,000多名工人中的30%休无薪假。

 

现代重工不能强迫员工休假,必须经过每个人同意,休假时间从9月开始。

 

截至6月底的前3个月,现代重工录得692亿韩元(约合6200万美元)利润,低于去年同期的1375亿韩元。

 

分析人士预测,订单量增加显示复苏迹象,韩国造船商的前景将日益改善。

 

据报道,现代重工与维多集团签署了6亿美元的协议,建造多达八艘超大型液化气体运输船。

 

现代重工也参与竞争达飞轮船的超大型集装箱船订单,但似乎中国船厂已经获得了达飞的合同。

 

现代重工的一名管理人员告诉《韩国时报》:“2017年下半年,我们要建造约30艘船。”

 

 “所以,大约有5000名工人无事可做”。

 

通常,现代重工在6个月内需要进行40多个项目。

 

据最新数据显示,现代重工的积压订单上有85艘船,低于1年前的110艘船。

 

尽管获得了如维多集团等公司的大量订单,但现代重工的工作量似乎还不能让所有员工都有工作可做。

 

根据同一份报告,如果海运行业持续低迷,现代重工可能不得不在2018年让更多工人临时休假。
