Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast reports BBC News, can only survive until the end of the month without a deal, Unite the Union has said.
The business has been up for sale amid serious financial problems at its Norwegian parent company.
Trade unions have been hoping that the yard could benefit from plans to build more Royal Navy ships in the UK.
But now fear there is a risk that it will not survive for long enough to participate in that.
