Councils hold productive talks with GMB over bin strike
Released: Thursday, 31 March 2022
Talks today (Thursday 31st March 2022) between Adur & Worthing Councils and the GMB union about finding a way to end the bin strike have been positive and productive.
Representatives of the Councils and the union met with ACAS, the UK's industrial mediation service, at Worthing Town Hall this morning to discuss a way forward to end the dispute.
The talks were constructive and it was agreed that the Councils would draft a recognition agreement for the waste, refuse and cleansing department which the GMB and UNISON, the union already recognised at the Councils, will be encouraged to sign.
If the agreement is signed, it is expected that formal negotiations, facilitated by ACAS, will then begin to try to resolve the GMB's issues, with the hope that the strike will end as soon as possible.
