An indicative ballot of workers at Doncaster Council in the Unison, Unite and GMB unions has moved them closer to industrial action.
The workers—including street cleaners, road-workers and horticulturists—are angry at attempts to change shifts and other conditions.
They have voted to move to a ballot for action. Unison and Unite each got 95 percent yes votes on a 97 percent turnout. The GMB got a 90 percent yes vote on a 75 percent turnout.
