New dates announced for Refuse Worker strikes

Unison have announced two half day strikes for refuse workers on January 13th and 14th.

The ongoing backlog of rubbish from the strikes continues to generate press coverage and readers responses.

Birmingham Mail today carried two articles:

New bin strikes announced in Birmingham

Residents despair at city bin bag mountain – front page, single column and full page article page 3 – unfortunately I can’t find this online.

There were also many letters in today’s Mail, some supportive, some not.

Feel free to add your own voice by emailing


Birmingham Against the Cuts fully supports the strike action by Refuse Workers from Unison, GMB, UCATT and Unite.
