Remploy workers in the Unite and GMB unions struck in Glasgow and Chesterfield on Thursday of last week. They are fighting what they call the “semi-privatisation” of their factories.
Remploy is a government-owned company which provides employment for disabled people.
Workers say that their factories have taken on workers who aren’t disabled—on terms and conditions inferior to those of Remploy workers.
