A BIN strike across the city will go ahead as planned tomorrow, after last minute talks with the council failed to prevent industrial action.

Brighton and Hove City Council met those planning to walk out over pay and working conditions earlier this afternoon.

However, a spokeswoman for the council confirmed that strike action by refuse collectors will take place tomorrow.

A ballot by the GMB union for strike action was unanimous, with 100 per cent of members who voted supporting the walk out.

Brighton's CityClean, recycling, commercial waste and HGV drivers is set to go on strike for two weeks as part of the industrial dispute.

The union have called on the council to settle the dispute around unilateral imposed daily changes and the removal of drivers from long-standing rounds.

Branch secretary Mark Turner said: "I am sure the council will want people to believe that this is just the GMB union and its members causing disruption once again, but the truth is that this avoidable dispute is completely as a result of the council's own making.

"They have been told time and time again about the service issues and detriment to our members' health and well-being resulting around tinkering with well-established rounds and moving of HGV drivers outside their own council formal procedures, yet they ignored our members and workplace reps' complaints allowing it to go on anyway."

A statement from the council regarding the talks is expected shortly.
