Wirral binmen balloted on possible strike

WIRRAL'S street cleaners and binmen are being balloted for possible strike action in a row over pay and conditions.

Trade union Unite has confirmed it is in dispute with Biffa, the council's current contractor for recycling, refuse and street cleaning services.

The union's 190 members are being balloted this week, with the poll due to close on Friday.

Brian Nelson, local officer for Unite, told the Globe: "At this stage all I can say is that we are balloting our members for action.

"We are due to meet the concilliation service ACAS and Biffa later this month and hopefully we can avoid any strike action."

The ballot comes exactly a year after more than 200 Biffa staff voted to strike last year.

At the time, union officials blamed the situation on reductions to local government budgets.

The action was averted after a deal was reached and it is hoped the same will happen this time.

Unite has informed Biffa that it is balloting members about possible industrial action.

A spokesman for the waste management company said it had agreed, with the union, to involve ACAS in the dispute in a bid to try to resolve the issue.

He added: "We are hopeful that this initiative will lead to an agreement without Wirral's services being disrupted."

In a statement, the council said: "Biffa management are keeping the council updated as to the progress of their discussions with union representatives.

"This is a matter for the contractor to resolve their own workforce.

"As part of their contractual obligations, it is the responsibility of Biffa to ensure that adequate contingency plans are in place to ensure that any plans are in place to ensure that any plans are in place in order to ensure that any disruption to frontline services is minimised should industrial action occur."

This is the best refuse collection service we have had up to now, they are often maligned by the public for nothing other than trying to do their job, usually by those that expect them to take mattresses or three piece suits or the contents of their DIY projects, good luck to them I say.

This issue has so incensed me I have just taken it upon myself to check on a couple of public bins on the prom (adjacent to Leasowe Lighthoue & Moreton Common) that were 'full & overflowing' at 2 pm today. Whilst walking back I observed a refuse collecting vehicle being driven along the prom so thought...ah bins will be empty later. No - they are not! Working to rule are we? Making a stance? Please do not forget who is paying the wages! Disgraceful...absolu
tely disgraceful and the contract should be cancelled forthwith. PS Strange that the bins on the lower level have been emptied!!!! Yes, it is sad that I have done this today & yes I do have better things to do.

keen gardener, perhaps you should seek another explanation as to why the bins are overflowing or not being emptied other than blaming the street cleaners, let me see how about a workforce of just over 200 to run the refuse collection and street cleansing that cover an area from the top of Wirral to Neston, coastal, towns, villages, countryside, if you wish to have a premium service then it follows that you have to pay premium prices, rises in council tax to pay? no I thought not , as to the utter dross you stating they are making a stance working to rule etc, what utter rubbish (not a pun) they haven't even had a ballot yet! if you wish to blame someone blame the Thatcher government for privatisation, were instead of running services at cost (break even) we now have companies that do it for profit which in turn affects the quality of service basically with less to do more.
