REMPLOY (AN212-2012)

The Committee notes with extreme concern the decision announced on 6th December to close the Remploy factory in Dundee. The Committee agrees to set up an Action Group to be chaired by the Lord Provost in response to this announcement. Elected members from the City Council (2 Administration, 2 Labour, 1 Conservative, 1 Liberal Democrat, 1 Independent), the Citys two MPs, the Citys two MSPs, the North East List MSPs, a representative of Remploy Management and a representative of Remploy staff will be invited to join the Action Group and the first meeting of the Action Group will take place as soon as possible.
