News from the Green Party
24 May 2006
Immediate release

The Green Party is supporting trades unionists working for Remploy, the UK's
biggest employer of disabled people, who protested today in London at a
government review they believe will throw thousands of working disabled
people back onto benefits.

The protest was aimed at Work and Pensions Secretary John Hutton, as he
spoke at the TUC Disability Conference on Wednesday 24th May.

Remploy is a subsidised manufacturing company, run by the Department of Work
and Pensions, which was set up more than 60 years ago to provide work for
disabled people. It now employs more than 5,000 people in 83 factories in
the UK making a huge range of goods for the public sector, from police
chemical protection suits to furniture for university halls of residence.

However a strategic review launched in March this year means that every
Remploy factory in the UK is now under direct threat of closure, with the
spectre of thousands of disabled people being thrown out of work and onto
benefits. Bob Warner the Chief Executive of Remploy has made it plain that
there will not be 83 factories left as a result of the review, and unions
suspect the entire operation may close.

Dr Joseph Healy, National Disability Advisor for the Green Party, says: "At
a time when the government proclaims its intention of encouraging disabled
people back into the labour market, it beggars belief that the existence of
Remploy, an organisation which employs many disabled people is being
threatened.

"It is a well known fact that rates of unemployment among disabled people
are far higher than for any other group in society. Not only do disabled
people have to deal with discrimination from potential employers and
coercion from the Benefits Agency, but now the government removes one of the
few organisations which is a model of employment creation for the disabled
community.

"Remploy and its employees, far from being shelved, should be a model which
is properly funded and rolled out across the country, so that thousands of
disabled people currently eking out a meagre existence on benefits, many of
whom are eager to join the labour force, could find a welcoming work
environment, where they could develop their economic and personal potential.

"The Green Party calls upon the government to ensure the continued existence
of Remploy and its staff ,and to follow up its stated intentions towards
disabled people with a concrete decision to save their jobs, rather than
meaningless platitudes about 'social inclusion'."
