GMB, the union for steel workers, has demanded reassurances from Tata Steel there will be no job losses in Port Talbot.

Last night TATA Steel announced plans to cut 3,000 jobs across its European operation. 

Mike Payne, GMB Senior Organiser for GMB Wales and South West said:

“This is disappointing news. Right now we’re demanding reassurances from TATA that these Europe-wide cuts won’t affect our members in Port Talbot.  

“We understand the global challenges affecting the Steel Industry, but any loss of jobs could be a threat not only to the families affected, but also to the wider community.

“This uncertainty and constant threat of job losses drains confidence from the whole workforce.”
