Government talks with unions to save Tata jobs ‘extremely positive’, says Unite

Neath Port Talbot

Following high level talks yesterday morning with the secretary of state for business and trade, Jonathon Reynolds, Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said:

“Our meeting this morning with the business secretary Jonathan Reynolds was extremely positive. It is clear that the new secretary of state for business understands the need to secure the future of steelmaking in Britain.

“The commitment given to achieving a sustainable, profitable UK steel industry is very welcome and as was said this morning, decarbonisation must not mean deindustrialisation.

“In recent months, Unite has been fighting to save jobs at Tata and to revitalise the UK steel industry for the future of communities and for our national security. We are at a critical first stage but the extra investment now secured and the change of attitude from this new Labour government could be the game changers in making this happen.”
