GMB, the steel union, has responded to the ‘bombshell’ announcement that Tata is to cut hundreds of jobs at its Newport steelmaking factory. [1]

Ross Murdoch, GMB National Officer, said:

“This is a bombshell for the people of Newport and yet another disaster for UK manufacturing.

“GMB will fight hard for every members’ job in the UK steel industry.

“Until this Government puts jobs and industry before internal party bickering over Brexit - we are likely to see more proud British industries go to the wall.”
