GMB, the union for steelworkers, has responded to the 355 Liberty Steel job cuts announced today.

Ross Murdoch, GMB National Officer, said:

"Once again we have more bad news for the UK steel industry. A country that doesn't produce it's own steel for key infrastructure projects and shipbuilding is a country that's destined to fail.

"Our steelworkers deserve better than this.

"The Government urgently needs to  intervene and ensure steel companies  in the UK receive the backing they have long called for on energy costs and business rates.

"GMB will of course engage with the company to mitigate any losses for our members and will continue to campaign with our sister steel trade unions to bring about the support and investment required."
