Workers at Tata Steel in Workington are waiting to hear more about the consultation process for employees affected by job cuts.
The firm has announced that 90 posts are under threat at the West Cumbrian plant. It hopes they will be voluntary redundancies.
The organisation, Britain's Energy Coast, which was set up to create jobs prospects in the area, is among the groups trying to help reduce the impact of the redundancies.
