Dustcart strike vote in Birmingham

Birmingham’s refuse workers have voted for strike action over council plans to axe 122 jobs.

Members of the Unite union voted by 90 per cent to strike, with 93 per cent in support of industrial action short of a strike.

The union is considering its next move in the dispute, which involves changes to working patterns, including a cut in the number of staff on rounds and concerns about the safety of workers loading dustcarts.
