Refuse workers, street cleaners and cemetery workers in Warrington, struck on Wednesday of last week.

The workers are protesting over the introduction of new contracts that will force them to reapply for their jobs. Under the new contracts workers could lose up to £2,500.

According to one worker, “The new contracts were introduced as a fait accompli.

“They want us to work a four day week and take a pay cut.

“We’re angry that they want us to work harder for less money.”

The members of the GMB, Unison and T&G unions had voted by over 70 percent for action and are now continuing their action by carrying out a work to rule and a ban on overtime.
