More bin misery for thousands of residents across Warrington

It has been confirmed that a fourth round of strike action will take place in Warrington from 21st November – meaning that most residents will have only had one collection in seven weeks.

The situation is now critical, with concerns around health and hour-long waits at recycling centres.

Whilst UNITE union members nationally have accepted a pay deal (a flat-rate increase of £1925), local members in Warrington are hoping for extra improvements including a one-off payment, changes to Christmas shift patterns and more laundry support.

Warrington Borough Council have called on UNITE to cancel their current strike and future strike action.  Discussions continue.

Congratulations to Keith!

80 year old Keith Knowles has been working at Warrington General for 50 years – and has no intention of quitting yet!  You can read the full story in this week’s paper!
