Pix: BlindCraft workers march on Parliament to save their jobs



EMPLOYEES of closure-threatened BlindCraft marched to the Scottish Parliament in a bid to save their jobs.
Organisers of the rally said it was the “last chance” to save the bed company, which employs dozens of blind and disabled people.

The move to close BlindCraft was rubber-stamped by the council last month after workers rejected a three-day working week.

The Community Union, which represents the majority of the 53-strong workforce, has launched a campaign to save BlindCraft, which has been providing employment to disabled people for more than 200 years.

Labour’s Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls and Scottish Labour Leader Iain Gray also met the protesters outside the Scottish Parliament.
