Tata Steel to cut 900 jobs in UK
Michael Leahy, General Secretary of the Community trade union and Chair of the trade unions Steel Committee, said: "We will be seeking an urgent meeting with the company to ensure our principle of no compulsory redundancies is upheld...".
Terming the proposed job losses as "symptomatic of the continuing failure of the Government's economic policy," he said the union has called on the British government to take urgent action to stimulate economic growth and help revive the manufacturing sector.
The announcement follows downturn in the UK and European steel industry, where the fall in UK steel demand has been steeper than in any other major European economy.
