Default GMB Union was on Binmen Strikes in Brighton, Derbyshire


Yes Old Fella, ignore the rats
just Chuck it on top.


[The affluent Seven Dials area is affected
as well as the rest of Brighton by the
ongoing bin men strike]


[Brighton shock: Rubbish piles up in the streets
and rats feast on scraps of food in echo
of dark days of the 1970s as resort's binmen go on strike
Dozens of bin collectors from the GMB Union walked
out in Brighton as part of industrial action last Tuesday
They are in dispute with the Green-led
council over pay and working conditions

Meanwhile, piles of bin bags up to 10ft high
are being torn open by rats,
foxes and seagulls
]

Haven't they always been a bit naff when it comes to bin collection and (actual) green politics?

For god's sake, they support biomass fuel over nuclear

[The union called on Brighton and Hove Council to settle
a dispute over the imposition of daily changes
and the removal of drivers from long-term bin rounds]


[Organisers say on a ballot return of
79.6 per cent every single worker was in favour
of industrial action. They are in dispute with
the council and are complaining about pay
and working conditions]

The GMB Union has said it will take around 10 days
to clear.
They sign the deal tomorrow.
