Keep Walkers at Peterlee open

For Walkers to rethink their proposal to close their Peterlee Site which will see around 400 job at risk.

Why is this important?

As the North East is one of the most unemployed areas in the country, an additional loss of around 400 jobs, on top of the jobs lost last year from steel works closures, would be a massive loss to the area and would also see a number of families left without an income.
