From The Socialist newspaper, 28 November 2012

Fight to save Tata steel jobs

Tata has given over 500 workers at its Margam plant in south Wales the most unwanted Christmas message they could ever have received: "You are being sacked with virtually no chance of getting another job". For every sacked steelworker it's estimated another seven jobs will go in the supply and service industries. Port Talbot, already struggling, will be devastated by these redundancies.

Tata blames the downturn in the world economy for the drop in orders. But it wasn't the steelworkers or the thousands of public sector workers in Wales who were responsible for the economic crisis - it was the billionaire bankers, speculators and spivs.

If Tata refuses to withdraw these redundancies the steel trade unions should demand the re-nationalisation of the steel industry in Britain but this time under democratic workers' control and management.

There should be an immediate convening of a conference for all shop stewards in Tata to plan a united fightback against these redundancies.

Socialists say:

Workers showed support for this programme with donations of 55 and sales of 45 copies of the Socialist at a Socialist Party campaign stall on Saturday 24 November.
