REFUSE workers are to continue with their two week bin strike and say “more misery” will hit the city’s streets unless Brighton and Hove City Council make significant improvements to their proposals.

The union said that the council’s offer does not change the “current position” that Cityclean workers are in and undermines the strike by asking for exemptions to certain requirements.

A spokesman said on Twitter: “We have now received the council’s offer in Brighton and Hove Refuse recycling and commercial waste dispute and it doesn’t change the current position.

“In fact all they want to do is undermined the strike by asking for dispensation in certain areas of the service.

“If the Green Council in Brighton and Hove and council offices want to stop strike action continuing after tomorrow [Wednesday 6] in Brighton, I know they need to improve significantly their proposals they’ve now put forward today because they are no different from eight weeks ago."

There is a meeting today at 11am to try and resolve the issue and put an end to GMB’s strike action. The union said that the council need to make “significant improvements” to their proposals ahead of the meeting.

The strike was triggered by a dispute over pay and working conditions for refuse workers across the city.

A ballot by the GMB union showed that 100 percent of the members who voted were in favour of a walk out, which started yesterday.

The strike is set to last until October 19, unless the council come to an agreement with the union.

The council has been contacted for comment.
