The domestic steel industry has experienced major setbacks and it is in need of serious intervention to ensure the survival of the industry and of its people.

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!
