Eastbourne bin men are striking again today.

GMB Union said: ““Eastbourne’s bin strike is set to go ahead tomorrow after the council issued a ‘misleading’ public statement.

“GMB met with council bosses on January 6, where they offered drivers approximately £12.30 per hour – a far cry from the drivers’ claim for £13.50 per hour – still considerably lower than the industry standard.

“Instead of waiting for drivers to vote on the new offer, the council made a public statement outlining the deal.”
