More Remploy closures

More Remploy closures
The Government has announced plans to close or sell off the remaining 18 Remploy factories for disabled workers, with hundreds of jobs set to be lost.

In a Written Ministerial Statement today, the DWP minister Esther Mcvey said 10 of the factories would close, three would be sold off, with the other five at risk of closing.

As a result of the closures, 875 Remploy employees – 682 of them disabled – are “at risk of compulsory redundancy”.

The sales and closing processes are expected to be completed by October 2013.
