The act of civil disobedience by the workers came after several calls by TUC delegates for greater use of the tactic in highlighting and defeating the cuts.
The disabled workers, who are represented by the GMB union, handed out leaflets outside the TUC Congress to highlight their national “road show” to secure employment before marching on the DWP offices.
After police had been called to remove the militant workers GMB’s national secretary for the manufacturing sector Phil Davies told the Morning Star that the occupation was the “beginning of our campaign to stop the closures” of Remploy factories.
“We are going to see more civil disobedience by disabled people over the coming months,” he said, saying the workers would remain in occupation of the offices until thrown out by police.
“It’s about bringing awareness to the public that we are not going to accept closures.”
Mr Davies revealed that employers had conducted a botched consultation process in which leading shop stewards at Remploy had not been invited to attend despite being given assurances that they would have a say.
