Climate Justice for Steel Workers 


Please join our online event Climate Justice for Steel Workers on Tuesday 28th May at 7pm online.

In January 2024, Tata Steel confirmed that it would shut down its Port Talbot blast furnaces with the loss of 2,800 jobs. This announcement came a few months after it was confirm the company would received £500 million subsidies from the government to transition its site to electric ARC furnaces, raising questions on how a ‘green’ transition should happen to the detriment of workers and their communities.

Our online event “Climate Justice for Steel Workers” will welcome Unite rep Jason Wyatt, Steel worker at Port Talbot and hear about their dispute.


It is crucial for the Climate Justice movement to stand in solidarity with workers as the Transition starts. Workers shouldn’t pay the price and the Transition should be Just and workers-led.

For more info, read this background paper by the Campaign Against Climate Change and this blog by the Greener Jobs Alliance. You can read Unite’s Workers Plan for Port Talbot here and the Unite campaign page here.

See you on the 28th!
