Over the past few months Jon has been running an online forum for local residents to send their best wishes to the sacked Remploy workers. The amount of messages that were received as a result was astounding.Following the online survey Jon collated the messages from the people of Dagenham and Rainham, and on Friday 22.03.2013 presented them in the form of a plaque to representatives of the Remploy factory.
Jon commented: “It’s not just jobs that have been lost; it is a sense of community. I will be doing everything I can to support the workers of the Remploy factory and their families. There is no doubt that disabled employees in the present economic climate will struggle greatly to find alternative employment, and I would like to take this opportunity to pass my best wishes to the workers. Letting them know that they are not alone in fighting against the damaging policies of this government.”
