A torchlit procession is being held on Teesside on Saturday evening, October 24, as a show of solidarity for the more than 2,000 who lost their jobs after the collapse of SSI UK.
The coke ovens and blast furnace at Redcar were shut down earlier this month, just days after the company entered liquidation due to financial difficulties.
Many more jobs are expected to be affected in the wider supply chain.
A procession to the top of Eston Nab is being held this evening to pay tribute to those who have worked in the steelmaking industry on Teesside over the past 170 years.
New figures show nearly a thousand people who worked for companies that supplied the SSI Redcar have been made redundant since it closed.
A new programme to help find jobs for steelworkers hit by a wave of redundancies will be chaired by the former deputy prime minister.
More than 800 jobs have been lost at Tees Valley firms that supplied the SSI steelworks in Redcar.
