GMB Welcomes British Steel Bids as Workers Await News : GMB, the union for steelworkers, has welcomed bids received for British Steel after the Official Receiver reported encouraging levels of interest.

Ross Murdoch, GMB National Officer said:
“That bids have been put on the table is a show of confidence in British Steel’s dedicated workforce and this proud industry.
“Production will carry on as normal as workers await consideration of the bids, and in hope that this vital industry gets the proper support it needs to be safeguarded for the longer term.
