Unite has welcomed the news that Japanese company Hitachi will take over the Horizon venture, Kevin Coyne from the union said:
This is good news for the UK nuclear industry, for jobs and for a low carbon future. There are massive job opportunities here in the UK and we urge Hitachi to maximise the UK supply chain.
At a time when Britain's economy is struggling to grow and good jobs are scarce it is hugely important that the players entering the UK energy sector ensure that all parties involved throughout in this project commit to good quality direct employment that benefits local communities, apprenticeships and skills - especially for young people.
