Birmingham binman says pay cuts has cost him his house


A BIRMINGHAM binman has lifted the lid on being forced to leave his dream house after seeing s400 cut from his pay packet under the current council dispute.

John, a binman loader of five years, based at Lifford Lane, claims he is now sharing a room with his wife and one-year-old son at his mothers house as a direct result of the pay cut imposed by the council two months ago and that is why he is taking the industrial action.


This article shows the human cost of the cuts.  We should support the refuse workers in their industrial action.

Remember tomorrow: Solidarity protest at the Council House from 5:30pm.


With thanks to No to Cuts in Birmingham Council Jobs and Services for bringing this story to our attention
