Responding to the news that TATA plans to go ahead with potential 3,000 job losses in Wales, Plaid Cymru members for South Wales West Luke Fletcher and Sioned Williams said,
“Tata’s decision to push ahead with potentially 3,000 job losses in Wales is absolutely devastating. Plaid Cymru is standing in solidarity with all the workers at this time and we stand ready to support those who need it.
“Port Talbot is Tata’s largest site in the UK, and workers here will be incredibly worried about this”.
“Decarbonisation should not be at the expense of workers, and currently we’re seeing highly skilled workers, who should be playing a part in that transition, being thrown on the scrapheap.
“Rather than cutting jobs, Tata should focus on retraining and reskilling, so that workers could transition to carbon-neutral steelmaking. The UK Government and Welsh Government must step in to make sure that those who face job losses get support urgently.
“This is going to have a devastating impact on not only the people of Port Talbot and its neighbouring communities but on the local and national economy.”
