Save Remploy demonstration

Have your say

SHEFFIELD will host one of two national demonstrations taking place today against the decision to close around two thirds of Britain’s Remploy factories for disabled people.

The Unite and GMB trade unions, which represent staff at threatened sites including Chesterfield, have organised the events. There will be a rally at 12.30pm today outside the Department of Work and Pensions’ Steel City House, on West Street, followed by a march to the Town Hall where speeches will be made.
