Refuse Worker Picket Details

Refuse Collectors have half day strikes on 13th&14th Jan (tomorrow and Friday)

Pickets from 10:30am at Tameside Drive, Castle Bromwich, B35 7AG; Lifford Lane, Kings Norton, B30 3JJ; Holford Drive, Perry Barr, B42 2TU; Norris Way, Sutton Coldfield, B75 7BB; James Road, Tyseley, B11 2BA

Go along and show your support and solidarity for the workers facing £4,000 pay cuts, and threats of pay being docked despite the fact that the work to rule action they are taking was legally balloted with overwhelming support for taking industrial action.

It is really important that refuse workers know that we support their struggle.

Remember that there is also a Solidarity Protest tonight in the city centre from 5:30pm, called by Right to Work

    Had a conversation last night with a mate who works at the Amey yard in Bordesley Green, which is where the scab bin wagons are based: it seems that there are serious health and safety concerns amongst Amey’s workforce as there are 120 extra people based at a centre which was already full to capacity. As well as issues about inadequate toilet facilities etc, there are serious concerns about the fact that 20 extra vehicles are being driven in and out -by operatives who have had little training- of a teeming yard where no one knows where they are supposed to be or what they are supposed to be doing. The situation is described as an accident waiting to happen. Any clues on how to get the Health & Safety Executive to investigate this?
