Remploy workers vote for industrial action

The Remploy workers in the Chesterfield factory and in the Springburn factory in Glasgow have voted overwhelmingly to take industrial action over the semi privatising of their factories.

Les Woodward, National Convenor and Trades Council Coordinator, Remploy Trade Union Consortium

A new Company has been formed, R Healthcare, which is a partnership between Remploy and a firm called Websters, a large private Orthotics firm.

Non disabled apprentices have been taken on and non disabled shop floor workers have also been taken on.

These appointments have been made on terms and conditions that are considerably inferior to those we enjoy in Remploy.

The first strike day will take place on the 26th of January starting at 6-00 am in Chesterfield and 7 30 in Springburn.


The site addresses are as follows

Remploy Ltd

Sheffield Road Chesterfield S41 8NJ

Factory Address

Atlas Ind. Estate

600 Edgefauld Road

Springburn

Glasgow G21 4NA

All Trade Unionists and activists are welcome on the Picket lines

Bring your banners and placards to show support for disabled workers fighting for their factories.
