BATH (AP) — More than 100 Bath Iron Works employees are expected to be laid off this week.

Dan Dowling, president of Local S6, told the Times Record newspaper  that 50 preservation technicians, 27 pipefitters and 41 shipfitters will lose their jobs by Dec. 20.

BIW’s communications director Jim DeMartini says the company will work with the union to see if some of the affected employees might find work in other trades.

He says he can’t predict when or if the employees will be called back to work.
