ITV reported that a new study suggests that the number of jobs at risk from the collapse of British Steel is over 32,000, much higher than previously feared. GMB union said that as well as the thousands directly employed another 28,395 work in the supply chain. Previous estimates had put the number of jobs at risk at 25,000 but the new analysis reveals thousands more are in the balance

GMB said "GMB members are showing today that the fight for jobs at British Steel is a fight our whole union will get behind. There is outrage across the country at the prospect of indispensable foundation industries like British Steel going to the wall, while the Government simply sits on its hands. The UK has lost almost half a million manufacturing jobs in the last decade and while the Tory Party leadership candidates debate how much they want to cut the taxes of the richest, our members are looking at a bleak and uncertain future. A continuing decline in manufacturing is not inevitable, but we need action to protect the skilled, well-paid jobs our proud industries can provide and support."
