British Steel workers need security and stability – Rebecca Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business, Environment and Industrial Strategy Secretary, responding to the news on British Steel, said:

“British Steel workers need security and stability. The government must do everything it can to ensure this deal is concluded to secure the future of the company and people’s jobs in Scunthorpe.

“It is essential that Oyak submits its full plans for proper scrutiny by the steel unions and works closely with them to ensure the long-term future of British steel in the interests of the workers, not just shareholders

“Given the company’s track record, Labour will hold the government to account if there are any moves to undermine the unions and workers’ terms and conditions.”
