Workers at the threatened Remploy factory together with their supporters will hold a solidarity march through Wrecsam on Saturday.
The march starts at the Remploy offices at Regent House, Regent St (opposite the old Art College) at 10am and all local people are urged to join the march to support the campaign to keep the factory open.
Plaid Cymru has made its view clear - the Tory/Lib Dem coalition cuts will wipe out Remploy from Wales. We call on the Welsh Government to put together a package similar to that being organised by Wrecsam council to ensure there are sufficient contracts for the workforce to set up a social enterprise or cooperative to run the organisation.
The £2.2m annual contract for kitchens in Wrecsam council houses is a huge boost to the local plant, an example of how local procurement can work to ensure the money spent by public bodies stays in the local economy.
The decision to axe the funding for these disabled workers mirrors a similarly disgraceful move back in 2007 when Labour decided to cut hundreds of Remploy jobs in Wales.
