Indian steel giant Tata Steel will cut 1,050 more jobs in Britain, a trade union said on Monday, following thousands of cuts in the industry announced last year.
Tata Steel is planning to cut 750 jobs at its Port Talbot site in Wales and 300 more at other plants around the country, the steel union Community said.
Tata Steel has 4,000 people at Port Talbot, which also employs 3,000 contractors and temporary workers.
"It is yet another chapter of the UK's ongoing steel crisis and the lack of a proper government response," Community said in a statement.
Contacted by AFP, Tata Steel declined to comment.
Britain's steel sector is in crisis and there have been thousands of layoffs in recent months, with companies blaming high energy costs and cheap Chinese imports.
Tata Steel in October announced 1,200 job cuts in Britain.
It also said in December that it was in talks with investment fund Greybull Capital to sell some of its European assets, employing a total of 4,700 people.
