Waste Collection Industrial Action

GMB Union members based at two Wealden depots have not agreed to a pay offer from WDC waste collection and street cleansing contractor Biffa.  WDC have been informed by Biffa, that members of their workforce belonging to the GMB union intend to take strike action from Monday 2nd May over pay.
Whilst Biffa continue to negotiate with the GMB union and the staff involved to reach a fair settlement, this action will inevitably impact on the waste collection and street cleansing services they are able to operate across the District.
WDC are continuing to work with Biffa’s management to reduce the impact on services and updates will be made to the Council’s website daily from Monday.
