More Remploy jobs under threat in Wales

Around 140 Remploy workers in Wales are at risk of losing their jobs under fresh closure plans, the UK Government has announced.

In Neath, 67 workers have been told they face compulsory redundancy, while in Porth 72 jobs are under threat.

Ministers announced earlier this year that a number of Remploy factories would close, saying that the budget for disabled employment services could be spent more effectively.

Across the UK 875 Remploy workers, including 682 disabled people, are now facing an uncertain future.
