Hundreds of people are expected to protest in Norwich on Saturday 14th April against plans to close tens of factories that employ people with disabilities.
It comes after a Government announcement in March 2012 that 36 of Remploy's 54 factories are to close because they are not financially viable.
The GMB Union says it could mean compulsory redundancies for 1,752 workers, of which 1,518 are disabled, and that it expects the remaining 18 factories to close in due course.
The Government says the closures will allow the money saved to be spent more effectively.
"We have been absolutely clear that the £320m budget for specialist disability employment services has been protected. But by spending the money more effectively, we can support thousands more disabled people in work."
