UNITE, Community, UCATT and GMB are holding a national rally in Sheffield this Saturday to make the case for saving our steel industry. Sheffield TUC is calling on Sheffield union branches and members to support this event and show solidarity with steel workers and their families who are facing loss of jobs on a massive scale.
PLEASE BRING YOUR UNION BANNERS
Families will be welcome at the event, which is aimed to celebrate our steel and metal industry and send a strong message to the government to ‘Save Our Steel’. There will be speakers, music and face painting for the children. Irwin Mitchell Oval Hall, City Hall, Sheffield S1 2JA
Message from Karen Reay, UNITE Regional Secretary:
“You’ll have recently seen the news about the crisis in the UK steel industry. In our region, thousands of our members are affected. Demonstrations have been taking place across the region and a lobby of Parliament was held last week.
On Saturday 21 November 2015 a rally is being held at Sheffield City Hall and it would be great to have a strong presence from all our members to show support to the steel workers. The rally is from 2.00pm until 5.00pm.
