United Kingdom -Disabled workers occupy Remploy head quarters -August 23, 2012

Strikes to place on 19 and 26 July against the imminent closing of 27 of the 54 Remploy factories that provide jobs for disabled people to return to work. Over 1500 employees are expected to be laid off in the 27 closing factories, while the fate of the remaining Remploy factories is uncertain. Unions called the government decision to close the factories shameless and said that this will make life even harder for people who make tremendous efforts to work hard. Disabled workers have occupied Remploy HQ and unions have announced a four-day walkout at sites in Chesterfield and Springburn, Glasgow, from August 28.
