Birmingham bin workers solidarity campaign launched

by Mike Johnson
Issue No. 2575

Up to 60 people—including ten bin workers—attended a meeting in support of the Birmingham bin workers on Tuesday of last week.

The speakers included bin workers’ Unite union convenor Richard Beddows, Unite regional officer Lynn Shakespeare and Unison union branch secretary Caroline Johnson.

The meeting agreed on practical steps that everyone could take to make sure that the bin workers win. A committee has been formed to make sure all the actions agreed happen.

The strike was paused last month pending the outcome of a High Court case.
