Strikes will mean missed rubbish collections

This Is Wiltshire: Motorists queue at Darby Close recycling centre Motorists queue at Darby Close recycling centre

THOUSANDS of homes in North Swindon could miss out on having their rubbish collected for almost a month as binmen take strike action tomorrow over low pay.

They are joining local government workers, teachers and firefighters in a day of action over a range of issues from pay to working conditions.

At this stage it is not known exactly how many will walk out as union members do not have to declare their intention, but the council is bracing itself for disruption to waste collection services, with North Swindon due for collections tomorrow.

Up to 9,000 homes are due to have their waste collected in Taw Hill, Haydon Wick, Moredon and Abbey Meads and while some will have theirs collected, many may not.

The problem is exacerbated as the council cannot bring in extra services to deal with any rubbish which is not picked up due to laws surrounding industrial action.

It means some homes could not get their waste collected for a further two weeks.

At this stage the council is not in a position to speak about further plans because they do not know what the level of disruption will be.

The advice being given to residents is to put rubbish out as normal and if it has not been collected by 5pm then take it back indoors.

A priority for collection will be given to household waste and recycling. The recycling centre at Waterside will be open, although there are likely to be some staff shortages.

On a normal day, there would be around 125 drivers and loaders on duty, about 25 of whom would be agency workers. Of the other 100, the council do not know how many will be taking action and are prevented from bringing in more agency staff.

Coun Toby Elliott (Con, Priory Vale) said he would see if anything could be done to help those homes that do not get their waste collected.

He said: “I think people on both sides of the fence would agree that taking strike action is the last thing anyone wants to do.

“It’s not just the bins but with some schools closing, parents are having to re-arrange their whole lives for the day.

“If bins are not collected then some homes will not have their waste taken for a month which is unnacceptable and regrettable.

“I will be working with the cabinet member for waste and the council leader to see if we can put any extra services on to deal with any problems while staying within the law.

“Residents in my ward who are having a problem can contact me and I will see what I can do to help”

Local government workers who are in Unite, Unison or GMB are taking the action after rejecting the government’s offer of a wage rise because it was not in line with inflation.

The cabinet member for waste collection Brian Ford (Con, Wroughton and Wichelstowe) said: “We do not like this any more than other people as it is not of our making.”

“We are working with the unions to minimise the houses which are affected but we are anticipating most will go out on strike.

“We have some agency staff and we are prioritising waste which is likely to contain the most material likely to cause upset, such as food.

“This is very frustrating as I have only recently taken over the portfolio.”

Oh that's just brilliant! So our bins, that are already stinking despite double-wrapping and washing everything possible - because they've been festering for a fortnight between collections - won't be collected for up to a month. Just what did the folks of North Swindon do to deserve that?

I suspect what will happen is that many of the strikers will be offered overtime to work extra hours on Friday and over the weekend to clear the backlog; thus ensuring they actually get paid more than they lost through taking the day of strike action.

Whilst the council cannot lay on extra services during the strike then can do so outside of the strike.

Any person taking part in the strike should be on a picket line or other formal protest and not simply taking the day off.

Several years ago, my recycling wasn't collected for 8 weeks, so I complained and asked for a refund of council tax. I was told that it was a tax rather than a payment for services and had to be paid regardless of whether the service was provided.

If the service was privatised, the council would force the contractor to make extra collections or pay compensation. Then again, if refuge collections were privatised, the workers would be less likely to strike in the first place.

Time to privatise refuge collections.

Not right to blame the Council or SCS for this. It is the union leaders to blame.

You won't get caught because they will either be in the pub, or down the coast having a jolly, while your children go uneducated and your other paid for services are not delivered.

I reckon the whole private sector should go on strike...Not to raise their own pay and conditions to that of the Public Sector, but to force the Government to bring the pay and conditions DOWN to the same level as the private sector...then they'd really have something to moan about!!!

For your information, if someone wanted to manipulate the votes then they wouldn't need multiple logins. It's trivially easy to do using most browsers. I would suggest that you just accept that fact and get on with your life.
It amuses me that someone is so desperate to go to the lengths they do when I post a comment. I do not mention what I agreed not to despite the abuse of it continuing.

Will I get a refund on my green waste collection?

The charge for the black bin collection is included in the council tax which has to be paid regardless of service delivery.

The green bin collection is an additional charge and is not a tax. The council has a contractual obligation to empty them.

A good point and well made Localboy86 , the strike tomorrow does appear to be a national issue rather than a local one. However, I am up to my eyeballs in recycling as I don't have enough boxes for a fortnight, I have had to buy a £60 composter as green waste collection is no longer free, other people are fly tipping their green waste into the hedge at the bottom of my street, and it is hard going to drop anything off at the recycling centres as the queues are so long. These impacts are due to the decisions made at local level by Swindon Council, not by the strike tomorrow. The strike tomorrow would have much had less of an effect if we had proper service in the first place.
