Normal bin collections to resume today
"Workers in Rugby were not prepared to accept poverty pay."
By Eleanor Holdsworth
RESIDENTS’ bins will be collected from today (Tuesday 31st May 2022) as normal, after the end of the industrial action.
Rugby Borough Council’s waste and street cleaning crews will return today following the five-week strike.
Refuse collectors and street cleaners walked out on strike on 26th April following a pay dispute between Unite Union and Rugby Borough Council.
However, the two sides have now reached an agreement and the strikers will return to work today.
