Redundancy talks on the cards at Remploy in Baglan
REDUNDANCY consultation is due to start with workers at the Remploy factory in Baglan, near Port Talbot, next week.
The factory, which makes furniture, is not expected to close in the near future as it still has to meet existing orders.
While the UK Government and Remploy announced recently that they have not identified a final preferred bidder for the business, and as a result the plant will close, a Remploy factory in Porth, which employed 56 workers is being taken over by management.
Workers at the Porth computer recycling factory who did not take redundancy are expected to join the new venture.
Last year ministers in London announced that a number of Remploy plants were to close under phase one of their plans. In response the Welsh Government launched the employer support grant.
