At the recent Remploy workers’ pay and conditions conference in Blackpool, shop stewards who represent 83 sites in the factory network across Britain, demanded that the Labour government should sack the fat cat board of directors. Management have already sold the ground at the Remploy factory in Holloway, London, to Arsenal FC for £1.4 million.

Shop stewards overwhelmingly voted to ballot for industrial action if any factories are earmarked for closure.

There will be a national demonstration in Stirling in November.
