Save Our Steel

Community is running a major national campaign seeking support for the UK steel industry. ‘Save our Steel’ is a campaign that brings together union members, community groups & local businesses from across the country.

Our campaign

This campaign is not just about steelworkers. Without a vibrant steel industry we will not have vibrant manufacturing and construction industries. Steel is a vital foundation industry on which the UK economy is built.

Communities across the UK have steel at their heart. The steel industry has provided peace of mind to generations of steelworkers and their families. But now the industry is under threat.

Community, the steelworkers’ union, is campaigning to Save our Steel.
