All hourly-waged workers at the Lindo shipyard put down their tools and went on strike this morning in protest to the shipyard"s owner, A. P. Moller Maersk.

All hourly-waged workers at the Lindo shipyard put down their tools and went on strike this morning in protest that the shipyard"s owner, A. P. Moller Maersk, used a state loan to build ships in Asia rather than at the financially-troubled Funen location.

Maersk received a 2.6 billion kroner loan under the export loan scheme of the government"s Bank Package II. But the shipyard has been losing millions for Maersk in recent years and the company has moved much of its shipbuilding to Asia, where costs are far cheaper.

The strike came as the shipyard celebrates its 50th anniversary, but will soon closes due to recent financial troubles.

"We don"t have a lot of money and we don"t think it"s the right time for festivities, so everyone got a pastry and soda to mark the day," said shipyard CEO Peter Jann Nielsen to Fyens Stiftistidende newspaper.
