Tata to cut 580 jobs across Wales

Most of the job losses from steel giant Tata will be in South Wales. More than 500 jobs will be cut from the Port Talbot plant, under a restructuring of management and administrative posts, according the company.

  • 580 jobs will be cut across Wales
  • 155 jobs will be lost in Yorkshire
  • 120 jobs will be cut in the West Midlands
  • 30 jobs will be lost on Teesside

Sites to close include Tafarnaubach and Cross Keys in South Wales, while shift levels at the company's Rotherham and Hartlepool plants will be reduced to match production to lower demand for bar products and pipelines.
