Statement on Remploy Chesterfield

23 Sep 2012

GMB regional and local officials met with Remploy management on Wednesday 19th September 2012. During these discussions the company stated the future of the Remploy Chesterfield factory either through buyout with a TUPE transfer or a factory closure will be decided on Tuesday 25th September 2012 at a Remploy board meeting.

To enable discussions and have the opportunity to respond/negotiate on the Chesterfield factories future, GMB members have agreed to a further suspension of industrial action that was due to start on Monday 24th September 2012.

If there is no progress in discussions or no statement/information by Remploy before a GMB members meeting on Wednesday 26th September 2012 industrial action will continue and GMB members at Remploy Chesterfield will be on strike from 6.00am on Thursday 27th September to 6.00am on Thursday 4th October 2012.
