Strike action still on the cards following today's Brighton binmen talks

The Argus: Strike action still on the cards following today's Brighton binmen talks Strike action still on the cards following today's Brighton binmen talks

Strike action is still on the cards following today's meeting between Brighton and Hove binmen and council bosses. 

The GMB Sussex branch, which represents the binmen employed by Brighton and Hove City Council's CityClean department, says industrial action is still possible. 

However, it adds the council is now set to come back with proposals on Friday.

 

Geoff Raw, the counci'ls environment spokesman, said: “We met with representatives from the GMB union this morning about our refuse and recycling service.

"The union has raised a number of issues that staff have with the changed refuse and recycling rounds.

"We are working hard to reach a way forward on these issues.  We recognise and appreciate the efforts of our staff to work with us and hope to clarify these issues swiftly. 

"We have agreed with GMB that we will respond on a number of issues tomorrow and on Friday.”

The quicker we get rid of this council and get somebody who knows what needs to be done the better how does this council expect the dustmen to keep the city clear when they have not got decent reliable vehicles, cut down on staff and the population of Brighton and Hove increasing

Far too simplistic. The days of rampant demands are gone. They are lucky to have a job. Time has come to replace them all. The rest of us have suffered pay cuts in real terms and other austerity measures . If they do not like it they should go
