Jane Hutt AM met the RWE Management team at Aberthaw Power Station with Unite Senior Representative, Dave Fowler to express her sympathy and support for the 170+ Aberthaw workforce, their families and the Power Station Community which has played such an important role in generating power over the past 50 years.
‘I have supported the Aberthaw Power Station team over the past 20 years to help secure investment updating the plant, supporting the workforce and apprentices and backing their educational and environmental programmes.
I am determined to support the 170 strong workforce over the uncertain period ahead where their future employment and training opportunities will be discussed and planned including the best redundancy packages and backing from RWE.
I am liaising with Welsh Government Ministers and offcials to draw together all avenues of training and employment opportunities available and will be closely in touch with union representatives and management over the coming weeks and months.’
