Remploy workers on strike

Disabled workers in Chesterfield are going on strike for five days in protest against the government's decision to close dozens of Remploy factories.

There have been protests all across the region over the closures which will see more than 1500 disabled workers being made redundant. The decision was made after a review into the future of Remploy, which found money would be better spent helping disabled people find work in mainstream employment.
