South east London bin dispute settled

Issue No. 2362

Refuse workers in two south east London councils will no longer be striking next week. They are members of the Unite union employed by Veolia in Croydon and Bromley.

They were angry at a below inflation 2 percent pay offer.

Workers voted to accept a deal of 2.25 percent and a further 2.25 percent for next year, as well as improved sick pay and holidays.

This is still below inflation.
