In addition to the ongoing talks with Unite, the notice, three years ahead of the proposed closure, should mean a concerted process of local industrial planning is set in train for the future of the plant and its employees, led by the workers themselves and local decision-makers. Jobs that replace any lost must be fit for the environmental needs of the 21st century, unionised, and well paid.”
