Unite is determined to put UK manufacturing and supporting jobs at the heart of a post Covid-19 recover and rebuild plan. We are putting pressure on politicians at a national, regional and devolved nation level, as well as working with mayors and local authorities to ensure that UK taxpayers’ money is spent on supporting UK jobs.

We need urgent action now from government, with a clear plan and industrial strategy that directly intervenes in and provides support for our existing and future manufacturing capabilities, a diversification plan to build locally for a greener, cleaner environment and supply chain resilience as we reposition our economy to address the challenges ahead.

We’re taking our Manufacturing Matters strategy out to Unite’s regions with a series of workshop events hosted by our regional secretaries and Steve Turner, assistant general secretary for manufacturing.
