Unite: Jack Dromey holds government to account on Remploy
Friday, 30 November 2007
The new Remploy is welcome but what about the victims of past mismanagement?
Responding to Peter Hain's announcement on Remploy, Unite deputy general secretary Jack Dromey said the union would hold the government to account on its pledge for a new future for Remploy.
"For too many years, poor management has presided over decline," he said. "Now Peter Hain has recognised Remploy is vital for the disabled and committed the government to build a new and successful Remploy.
"But what about the victims of past mismanagement?" he questioned. "We are disappointed and will continue to work might and mane to win a future for those factories still threatened with closure."
