Union officials are urging the Government to guarantee the future of British Steel and safeguard thousands of jobs amid suggestions that the company is seeking a multimillion-pound loan to secure its future
It is understood that meetings are being held on Tuesday where workers will hear details about the company's plans.
British Steel employs thousands of workers, mainly at Scunthorpe, but has smaller plants in the North East.
Any financial help would come just weeks after the company was given funds of around £100 million to pay its European Union carbon bill.
