Leader welcomes 1000 new steel jobs

An announcement today 27th July by SSI UK to create 1000 new jobs at their Teesside Cast Products plant in Redcar have been welcomed by the Leader of Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, Cllr George Dunning.

A former steelworker of 30 years, Cllr Dunning, said the plans by SSI UK to launch their recruitment campaign for up to 1000 new jobs on the 8 August will provide a ‘significant boost for the local economy’.

“The faith that SSI have shown in the area’s world class workforce has to be congratulated and I am sure it will be rewarded when the site reopens for business.

The Council have supported the battle to save steelmaking on Teesside every step of the way and I would encourage local people to embrace the opportunities that this announcement provides.

Many thanks to all those involved in the return of steelmaking to Redcar and Teesside – especially the many unsung heroes who worked tirelessly to bring this day about.”
