General Dynamics Bath Iron Works will lay off 179 employees.

BIW spokesman Jim DeMartini told Mainebiz that the layoffs will go into effect Jan. 23 and that 11 different shipyard trades are affected, including welders, pipefitters, shipfitters, tinsmiths and material handlers. DeMartini said this round of layoffs is the largest he's seen in the past three years.

BIW, which employs 5,700, is nearing completion of its work on the DDG-51 class destroyer program. It is to begin work over the next couple of months on the next generation DDG-1000 destroyer.

"As we ramp up work on the DDG-1000, there may be an opportunity to call some of those folks back," DeMartini told.
