THE WORKERS at Remploy, the government-aided company that mainly employs disabled workers, have given Remploy’s final wage offer a massive 70 percent rejection. This comes after underhand bully-boy tactics from the board. The 5,700 workers are members of several unions – the biggest is the GMB, but some are in the TGWU, GPMU and KFAT.

It looks almost certain that a ballot for industrial action will take place pending the outcome of a meeting of the union consortium on 22 July. This is not just a fight about wages. It’s about how the company is run and how the fat cats on the board manage to squander £94 million of government subsidy annually.
