Industrial Action In Remploy

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

A new Company has been formed, R Healthcare which is a partnership between Remploy and a firm called Websters which is a large private Orthotics firm. Non disabled apprentices and also non disabled shop floor workers have been taken on. These appointments have been made on terms and conditions that are considerably inferior to those in Remploy.

The first strike day will take place on Thursday 26th January 2012 starting at 6:00am in Chesterfield and 7:30am in Springburn.

The site addresses are as follows:
Remploy Ltd, Sheffield Road, Whittington Moor, Chesterfield S41 8NJ

Atlas Industrial Estate, 600 Edgefauld Road, Springburn, Glasgow G21 4NA

All Trade Unionists and activists are welcome on the picket lines
