Corus jobs 'not at risk' in Port Talbot after Teesside closure. Let's wait and see !

JOBS at Port Talbot's Corus plant are not at risk despite Tata's decision to mothball its Teesside Cast Products factory.

The development, which has been labelled disastrous by Community Union, means 1,700 workers in Teesside face the axe.

However, a spokesman for Corus in Port Talbot told the Post: "There is no effect on Port Talbot whatsoever and no similar or parallel announcements in Port Talbot."

The spokesman explained the plants served different markets.

"It is a different business with its own specific challenges," he said.
