started this petition to
Bournemouth Borough Council
The Dorset Enterprises factory has been providing supported employment for people with disabilities in the Borough since 1914, making garden furniture for a number of prestigious clients.

Bournemouth Borough Council are set to close the factory in a matter of weeks putting 22 people out of work, most of whom have a disability.

UNISON are calling on Councillors to vote against the recommendation to close the factory and instead explore additional options to return the factory to break-even status including finding a suitable business partner.

This petition will be presented by UNISON to the Full Council meeting at which this proposal is next considered.

For more information contact Janine Miller, Bournemouth UNISON Local Organiser on 07415 332188 or email: j.miller@unison.co.uk
