Save Jobs at Remploy - Chesterfield March & Rally

Sat 8 Sep 2012, assemble 12.30am, Chesterfield Town Hall, Rose Hill

As 
part
 of
 the 
government 
plans 
to 
close 
and 
privatise 
Remploy
 factories
 across
 the 
country, workers
 at
 Chesterfield 
Remploy 
factory
 face 
job 
losses
 and 
a 
huge 
attack
 on 
their 
livelihood
. With 
more 
than 
2.6 
million 
people
 on
 the 
dole, 
the 
Government 
claim 
that 
sacked 
Remploy
 workers
 will
 be
 able 
to 
get 
jobs 
in 
the "mainstream"
 is 
nothing
 but 
a 
sick 
joke.
 The march
 will rally
 in 
Rykneld
 square
 (next 
to 
the famous crooked
 spire)
. Speakers 
from
 Remploy
 Campaign,
 Toby 
Perkins
 MP,
 John 
Burrows, 
Leader of 
Chesterfield
 Council, 
and
 other
 campaign
 speakers.
 Chesterfield
 Remploy
 workers 
are 
taking 
strike
 action
 to 
defend
 their
 jobs
 and
 working 
conditions 
and
 they
 need
 our
 support. Please come
 along
 on 
the 
march if you are near Chesterfield.
 Organised by Chesterfield Remploy workers, members of the GMB, who are on strike this week.
