Support Remploy Workers Yorkshire & Humber

As notified last week, Remploy workers are taking industrial action on Thursday 19th July and Thursday 26th July.
Remploy was established after the Second World War to provide employment for members of the armed forces injured in battle. Remploy quickly became the largest and most important employer of disabled people in the UK, and continues to provide sustained employment for ex-military personnel injured in modern conflicts. The government has ignored a 100,000 signature petition to save these factories, and plans to issue compulsory redundancy notices to staff by 17th August.
All Union members and our communities are urged to support our GMB and UNITE colleagues on strike.
Please find attached list of sites where there will be Remploy picket lines on Thursday.
