HOUMA, La. (AP) - A Texas company with a facility in Louisiana may lay off 227 workers in early June if it fails to win bids on upcoming projects.

The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1pgzJxF) Gulf Island LLC, which is headquartered in Houston, sent a letter to the Louisiana Workforce Commission on Tuesday about possible layoffs and said it hopes the job cuts are temporary.

The company, a subsidiary of Gulf Island Fabrication, makes offshore rigs and other structures in Houma.

In the company’s 2014 annual report, Gulf Island estimated its total workforce as varying between 1,700 and 1,900 employees. The company also uses contract labor as necessary.

The newspaper reports multiple calls to Gulf Island officials were not returned Tuesday afternoon.
