Welcome to the website of the Keep our Future Afloat Campaign.
"Keep our Future Afloat" is a non-political campaign led by UNITE and GMB trade unions local communities and supply chain businesses with support from its Secretariat . Barrow in Furness Borough Council and Cumbria County Council also supports our activity.
The campaign's two main aims are to:
- secure a steady drumbeat of naval submarine and shipbuilding orders to enable the Royal Navy to have the resources it needs to defend the UK and the sea lanes on which our trade depends ;
- sustain the high value skills in the UK's naval shipbuilding and submarine building yards, companies within their supply chains and at through life support bases.
