This is the largest group of redundancies to date that Bournemouth Borough Council have proposed and the majority of staff affected have physical or learning disabilities.
Many of the staff have worked for the council at the factory for over 10 years. The factory is a very supportive environment which understands the needs of its workforce and works individually with them to ensure that they can learn and develop skills at their own pace.
For many of these staff, it will be almost impossible for them to find similar work in private sector workplaces. Many of the staff support other family members with disabilities and the loss of this employment and income will force the families onto benefits.
1,500 signatures will ENSURE that this decision is debated at Full Council.
Please sign the petition TODAY to show your support for these public sector staff and protect the most vulnerable and their families from losing their supported employment.
