Assembly Member Pledges Support For Remploy Workers

A Welsh Assembly Member has pledged to help disabled workers facing redundancy. Five Welsh Remploy factories, including one in Bridgend, are set to close as part of a company shake-up.

Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones said he shared the disappointment felt by the 89 workers. He added: “I will be working with the employees and trade unions there over the coming weeks to support the needs of workers and discuss what we can do to help at this difficult time.”
