Ex-Corus staff get re-employed

More than 850 of the Welsh employees made redundant by Corus
have been re-employed.

The Anglo-Dutch steelmaker also announced that at least 700
staff have signed up for re-training. About 2,500 employees in Wales were among
the 6,000 staff made redundant earlier this year due to market pressures and
the need for restructuring.

Jobs were lost at the Llanwern site – which was closed –
Shotton, Bryngwyn and Ebbw Vale. Most of these staff served their six months
notice until July. Since then £135m of retraining and economic development has
been made available, reports the Financial Times.
