24 August (Part 3) - It may be good news

Craske's hopeI awoke this morning to a tip off that the bin strike would be suspended today.

Whispers are that this is true. Stand by for Peter Craske to go on National TV News! 😁

Kent On line for more news.

The deal includes a one-off £750 payment for 19 staff, contract changes that will reduce pay disparities and steps to prevent the “weaponization” of the drug and alcohol policy.

Unite regional officer Tabusam Ahmed said: “We are pleased that a provisional deal has been reached following an improved offer from Serco.

“While the deal is being ratified, which we expect to happen by the end of the week, our members will go back to work and bin collections in Bexley will resume.

“Until this deal is enacted in full, however, strikes are being suspended not cancelled, and our members retain the option to return to the picket line if they need to do so.”
