Len McCluskey: prime minister oblivious to uncertainty of Copeland community

Commenting on Theresa May’s failure today to make any announcement of government investment to secure the future of the Moorside nuclear power station project, Len McCluskey said:

“The prime minister had every opportunity while visiting the Copeland constituency ahead of tonight’s joint-union by-election hustings to reassure the workers and communities whose livelihoods depend on this industry and on the thousands of jobs Moorside will deliver. Instead she stayed silent, apparently oblivious to the agonising uncertainty being felt in the community by the doubt over Toshiba’s continued commitment to the project.

“I call again on the government to step in to secure jobs and skills at Moorside, and to ensure that the country’s lights are kept on.”
