Donovan Arnot started this petition to Arcelor Mittal and

Arcellor Mittal is unable to supply the local Steel downstream in South Africa, yet enjoy protection from government imposed duties that hike the pricing of steel being imported.

Arcellor Mittal is also the only Steel Mill in South Africa that produces hot rolled coil, cold rolled coil, steel beams and columns, colour coated coil, galvanised coil, plate, coil in thicknesses from 4.5mm to 12mm, and large plates from 16mm to 300mm. 

With them being the only mill that produces these items but currently incapable of doing so and being protected by government it is threatening far more jobs at companies in the downstream than Mittal could ever employ. 

 

It's time government stopped protecting one company and began supporting those who are contributing to the economy through employment and opportunity.
