Waste and street cleansing industrial action update
Wealden District Council has been informed by its waste collection and street cleansing contractor, Biffa, that following a meeting with representatives of the GMB union today (Thursday 21st April 2022) the union has agreed to delay strike action for one week.
This is to allow for its members to be balloted on a pay offer made by Biffa.
Strike action will therefore not begin as originally notified this Monday 25th April.
For the week commencing Monday 25th April, all waste collection and street cleansing services will operate as normal so please continue to put your bins out on the regular collection days.
We will provide further updates on this matter on our website and through social media as soon as possible.
We would also like to thank our residents for their understanding during this time.
