SLOVENSKÉ Lodenice Komárno shipyard has announced mass layoffs. Of 685 employees, 198 will lose their jobs by the end of this year, the SITA newswire reported.

The head of the Komárno labour office's employment service department, Dagmar Tureková, said that the reason is the company's unfavourable financial situation.

The unemployment rate in the Komárno district reached 13.54 percent in May, up 0.73 percent in one month since April. The labour office registered 7,398 job seekers which is 371 more than the previous month.

Five firms have announced mass layoffs in the Komárno district, with almost 700 jobs to be lost in the district by the end of 2009.
