According to the monthly purchasing managers’ index (PMI), released last week, UK manufacturers’ output fell by the most in seven years in July 2019.
Jude Brimble, GMB National Secretary, said: “The Tories are steering the economy into the rocks with their chaotic approach to Brexit and failure to invest in UK manufacturing industries.
“Every week more and more contracts and jobs are put at risk – people are worried sick about how they will cope.
“The government must urgently listen to the voices of workers and UK manufacturing and focus on defending decent jobs before even more damage is done.”
