Overtime is due to be banned at Remploy factories across the Midlands.

The government-run firm is to close three of its sites across the Midlands, it announced earlier this week.

In total, the government say, it has to close 27 of its sites across the country as part of necessary funding cuts and that money would be better used to support more disabled people in work.

Workers at Remploy's 54 factories are due to stage two 24-hour strikes in protest at the earlier announcement of closures.
