Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding today announced that beginning May 31, all of the company’s Gulf Coast facilities will be changing their work schedule to a five-day, eight-hour workweek from a four-day, 10-hour workweek.

The company had worked the four-day workweek since late 2004.

“Changing our work schedule to five-day weeks enables us to work safer, build better quality ships and it is another step we need to make toward meeting our cost and schedule commitments,” Irwin F. Edenzon, vice president and general manager, Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding-Gulf Coast said in a press release. “I am confident this change will improve our performance on current programs and allow us to be more successful in pursuing future contracts.”
