GMB, the steel union, has called on the Government to guarantee the future of British Steel and safeguard thousands of UK jobs.

Reports suggest ministers are drawing up secret contingency plans for the collapse of British Steel.

The company is desperately seeking a loan of up to £75 million from the Government to secure its future. [1]

Ross Murdoch, GMB National Officer, said:

“This Government has a track record of sitting on its hands while UK manufacturing collapses round its ears.

“Now is the time to take action – minsters must come out and guarantee the loan required to safeguard British Steel.

“Thousands of UK jobs are on the line – not to mention the entire future of our proud steel industry.”
