Statement on British Steel reports

14th May 2019

Responding to news reports regarding British Steel seeking additional funding, a spokesperson for the steelworkers’ trade union, Community, said:

“We are aware of the situation and are having ongoing discussions with the company at the highest levels. These reports will be extremely worrying news for all British Steel workers and many more in the supply chains. We understand that talks are continuing between the company, the government and lenders. We would urge all parties to recognise the consequences of not taking the necessary steps to ensure British Steel can continue. Everyone needs to do absolutely everything to give the company the chance of a future as to do otherwise would be devastating for thousands of workers and their families.”
