Workers vote for strike action

Have your say

REMPLOY workers in Chesterfield have voted to take industrial action over the ‘semi-privatisation’ of their factory.

They plan to strike on Thursday, January 26, and colleagues in Glasgow have voted to walk out on the same day.

Workers are angry Remploy has formed a partnership with another firm, Websters, to create R Healthcare.

Apprentices who are not disabled and shopfloor workers have been taken on with terms and conditions described as ‘considerably inferior’ to those of Remploy workers.

Remploy provides employment opportunities to support disabled people and those experiencing barriers to work.
