Unite steel campaign gained further momentum on Thursday (February 1) after it hosted a series of events in steel towns across the UK.

In Scunthorpe, residents joined Unite steel reps and activists erecting ‘UK Steel Jobs Not for Sale’ signs in front gardens on various streets throughout the town. It was a proud display of solidarity with steelworkers and their communities, who now face an uncertain future.
