GMB, Unite, Unison and UCATT Binmen strike

On Monday 20th December, Birmingham’s binmen held a 24hr strike over £4,000 paycuts.  This will be followed by a two week work to rule action.

GMB, Unite, Unison and UCATT members took part in picket lines held at refuse collection depots in Birmingham.

The picket lines began at 4:45am, and at Lifford Lane temperatures were as low as Minus 9 degrees.  There have been no reports of the picket lines being crossed, after Birmingham City Council had sought to employ temporary staff to break the lines.
