Shorten calls for action to save Australian steel industry


At a press conference in Adelaide on Friday morning, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said he had written to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull asking him to take action to save the steel industry.

Shorten said he believed there was a future for steel production in Australia despite Whyalla’s steelworks facing closure.

With hundreds of jobs on the line, politicians across the political spectrum are showing their support and rallying for measures such as tougher anti-dumping laws, taxpayer investment and greater use of home produced steel by governments.
