Remploy Job Losses

EDM number 1462 in 2010-12, proposed by Kate Green on 16/02/2011.

That this House fully supports the campaign to save Remploy from future job losses in the face of the current proposal to offer voluntary redundancy to the whole workforce of 3,400; notes that this offer is being issued within a few years of the conclusion of a plan to modernise Remploy under the previous Government with an award of 555 million over five years; further notes that the proposal will entail the closure of 29 factories and the loss of 2,000 disabled people's jobs; further notes the excess bonuses paid to Remploy management of 1.4 million; is appalled by Remploy management's disregard for the need to consult recognised trade unions in redundancy situations; and calls on the Government to force Remploy to consult the trade unions with the aim of mitigating job losses and turning Remploy into a strong, sustainable manufacturing company for the 21st century where disabled workers are proud to work.

This motion has been signed by a total of 43 MPs.
