Disabled people who work for the government-run firm Remploy have been told today that they're losing their jobs.
Factories in Leicester and Worksop have been told they will be closing by September. However, a factory in Chesterfield will stay open.
GMB Union's Jerry Nelson says the workers affected by the closures are 'decimated' by the decision.
Stoke on Trent South MP Rob Flello has condemned the Government's decision on closing 27 Remploy factories, including three in the Midlands.
Remploy factories in Leicester, Worksop and North Staffordshire will be among the 27 which union sources say will close between August and mid-December.
