York Disabled Workers Cooperative

York Disabled Workers Cooperative

Thu 1st Jul 2010

You may be aware that the GMB along with Remploy Trade Union Consortium launched a Workers Cooperative in York to fill the void left by the closure of Re,ploy York.  They will be producing garden furniture and wooden pet houses all made from recycled/reclaimed timber and materials.

THE DREAM IS NOW A REALITY!

The York Disabled Workers Cooperative has been set up under the Cooperative and provident Societies Model Rules and launched as a limited company on May 25 2010.
