Trade union chiefs are seeking showdown talks with the new owners of the Clydebridge steelworks.
A deal that will see international metals firm, Liberty House, take over the mothballed facility was confirmed last week.
Trade union chiefs have called for urgent talks with the new owners of Clydebridge steel plant.
It was confirmed last Thursday, March 24, that a deal had been struck to save the mothballed facility.
The Scottish Government agreed to buy the plant for £1 from previous owners Tata before immediately selling it for the same price to international metals firm, Liberty House.
Although some aspects of the deal have still to be signed, the road is now clear for the plant to reopen.
The news was hailed as a major victory for the Scottish steel task force, which included representatives from both the UK and Scottish governments and South Lanarkshire Council.
But Community union were this week urging caution until a more detailed business plan had been put together.
A spokesman for the union told the Reformer there were still question marks over how many of the 45 staff laid off last year would be re-employed.
He added: “We are seeking to meet with Liberty as soon as possible to find out what their plans for the plant are and what jobs will be kept.
“There are no guarantees at this moment, we will need to have a better understanding of what is happening.
“We have been contacted by hundreds of members. Everyone is pleased about the news but it’s now just a case of waiting to see what the response from the company is.”
The Reformer understands Liberty are still some weeks away from deciding the best future for the plant.
Sanjeev Gupta, Liberty’s executive chairman, visited the Dalzell plant last week after news of the deal was confirmed.
He said: “We must turn our attention to restoring these businesses to their former glory, steadily rebuilding their skilled workforces and customer base.
“Clydebridge and Dalzell will fit well into our vision for an integrated, flexible and sustainable steel sector, from recycled local scrap using renewable energy- making green steel to value added downstream and engineered products.”
Rutherglen and Hamilton West MP, Margaret Ferrier, hailed the news, saying: “I am absolutely delighted that a deal to save our steel industry has been sealed – bringing to an end months of anguish and uncertainty for workers in Cambuslang.
“The efforts of the Scottish Government, trade unions, the workforce and the companies themselves have paid off – and I would like to personally thank all of those involved.
“I also want to thank business minister Fergus Ewing who has led the Scottish steel task force over the last few months, as we resolved a number of issues which have helped make the deal possible.”
