Britain, we need our steel

Community and the other steel trade unions are running a major national campaign calling on the government to make sure our steel industry is at the foundation of the UK’s recovery from the pandemic.

The campaign is lead by the three steel unions; Community, Unite and GMB.

We want to thank UK Steel enterprise for their generous financial support for the campaign.

Our campaign has received backing for a significant number of people from across the political and industry divide.
