HUNDREDS of workers from Remploy are heading to Westminster today (May 9) to protest against the planned closure of factories.

In March bosses at Chesterfield’s branch, designed primarily to support disabled staff, announced the factory was to close with 35 others across the UK.

The Government decided to reduce funding for the organisation and redirect support into helping disabled people into mainstream employment.

Staff will be protesting outside the Department for Work and Pensions before marching to the House of Commons.

Workers are also to join striking workers on picket lines during the pensions action tomorrow (May 10).
