Remploy Consultation Begins

A formal 90 day consultation on the proposed Remploy factory closures begins today with a meeting in Leicester attended by representatives from all over Britain.

Unions representing Remploy workers yesterday announced plans to step up their campaign to save the jobs at stake. The unions are said to be "moving towards" a national strike ballot. The unions intend to closely scrutinise the criteria used for choosing factories for closure. At the moment these criteria are not clear.

I would hope that the situation is the same elsewhere as it is in our local area where union branches, individuals and groups are offering their support to the Remploy workers who are planning a demonstration later in the summer.

In the US, workers have even fewer strike options. Too bad that factory is not in Venezuela.
