Refuse Strike Continues


Thirteen days in to the refuse workers strike and Leeds is awash with rubbish. Refuse workers earn just £18,000 a year and the council wants to cut their wages by a third. That's not fair and it's not acceptable.

Refuse workers do an important job, and are not on a high wage. Lib Dem and Tory council leaders need to listen to local people and the refuse workers and find a resolution to this crisis, a crisis which councils across the country have successfully avoided.
