Tata Steel workers have endorsed the company's agreement with unions on jobs, investment and production as part of the joint venture with German firm thyssenkrupp.

Representatives from the Community union travelled from across the UK to Port Talbot where they met to scrutinise the plans announced last week.

Around five thousand of 14 thousand UK staff are employed in South Wales and at Shotton on Deeside.

With a jobs guarantee until 2026 and commitments to invest across the business, including a repair of blast furnace five at Port Talbot, this agreement means workers can look to the future with confidence.
