  • Joint Statement from the Teesside Cast Products Joint Management / Trade Union Task Force

    12 Jan 2010

    A productive first meeting of the Joint Management / Trade Union Task Force was held today on Teesside.

    In the interests of maintaining a continuation of meaningful talks with a view to securing a positive future for TCP, Corus agreed to consider a TU proposal to extend TCP’s operating programme and postpone the partial mothballing to the end of February. 

    This extension of the operating period would not affect timescales associated with the ongoing HR process.

    Also at today’s meeting, Corus confirmed its intention to continue operating the South Bank Coke Ovens, following the improvement in the market conditions for coke.  As a result of this decision about 120 additional jobs will be retained at South Bank Coke Ovens.
