Victory for Medway bin workers

Unite the Union reps are pleased to announce that we have won in our dispute at Medway Norse and have ensured a safe environment for staff and the local community (see ‘Refuse collection workers strike’ at socialistpartyorg.uk).

Thanks to the strength of workers who stood together and the support of people who signed our petition, Medway Norse have agreed to pay all staff for the walkout days regardless of whether they went to work or not. They have implemented social distancing measures, PPE (such as hand sanitiser, gloves, wipes and masks) has been made available, and all staff are guaranteed toilet access, even if they close the toilets to the public.

On behalf of Unite the Union, we would like to send a big thank you to everyone who signed and shared the petition and backed our members to get this victory.

To all #TUSC supporters Best Wishes for 2022 - let’s see if together we can find hundreds of trades unionists, community campaigners and socialists to challenge austerity at the May local elections in the biggest and widest possible socialist unity.
