Remploy workers strike to save jobs for disabled workers, Thur 19 July

10 July 2012

Remploy workers will stage two 24-hour strikes in their campaign to stop the government closing 36 of the 54 remaining Remploy factories that provide employment for disabled workers.

The workers, members of the Unite and GMB unions, have set the dates for strikes on Thursday 19 July and Thursday 26 July. They will also start a continuous overtime ban on Thursday 12 July.

If the factories are closed, more than 1,700 workers – over 1,500 of them people with disabilities – will be thrown on the dole.

How to help
