Large quantities of cheap, subsidised steel are being dumped in our country amid a global steel crisis, and this dumping is costing us our jobs.
For the first time in a generation, there is a very threat that the South African steel industry could go to wrack and ruin. We have already lost a giant in Highveld Steel, and we simply cannot allow this to happen again.
Solidarity is taking the lead. We have a plan to save the jobs of thousands; a plan to help ensure the future of our steel industry in the long run.
We need you – for the sake of our steel, our communities, our people.
Support our steel!
