Leeds bin workers refuse pay cuts

Issue No. 2151

GMB, Unison and Unite trade unions in Leeds say industrial action could be looming over the latest row over refuse workers’ pay.

Union leaders say that if the council’s latest proposals for bin services do not address potential pay losses then industrial action will be inevitable.

The council plans to change refuse collection services and has said if the unions do not agree to the changes then they will have no option but to privatise the service.
