On 7th March Remploy announced its intention to close all of its factories with the potential compulsory redundancy of 1,752 mostly disabled workers. The joint Unions are committed to fighting to save the Remploy factories and our members’ jobs.

We must show the strength of feeling that taking jobs from disabled people should not be tolerated in a civilised society. It will not improve the country’s financial situation – it may well make it worse.

Join us in the fight to save Remploy

This is 2 days after the Central London action planned by Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) on the 18th April – meet at Leicester Square McDonalds at 1.30.

DPAC are currently trying to raise money to help with people’s travel costs on the day – please help if you can.
