The 4 were sacked in October and the 120 strong workforce refused to leave the depot. Following a ballot they were due to strike over Xmas after a deal appeared to have been agreed. The 4 workers were due to return to work on Monday 14th January but the council have reneged on the deal.
Unite Regional Officer Onay Kasab says
“We now call on all our members to take action, primarily to get justice for the four but now more importantly to show that Veolia and Bromley cannot make an agreement and then simply refuse to abide by it.”
